Our wines among the world’s best
SOUTHERN Downs wines are once again making a name for themselves on a global platform.
The Granite Belt region made it on to Gourmet Traveller’s 50 Top Wine Experiences in the world.
The list boasts the Granite Belt as having “a number of family-owned, boutique wineries crafting charming chardonnays and stunning shiraz. Even riesling rises to the occasion.”
Author Daniel Honan recommends taking a “self-guided road trip throughout this uniquely cool, high-country (1000 metres) wine region, stopping in at Ballandean, Symphony Hill, Rumbalara, and Ridgemill Estate wineries, just to name a few”.
“Don’t miss Jamworks Gourmet Foods, outside Glen Aplin, with delicious local preserves, jams and relishes,” he said.
The Granite Belt is listed among renowned regions including Champagne in France, Tbilisi in Georgia and Italy’s oldest winery in Tuscany.
