Sirromet Wines

Queensland | Granite Belt

James' Review

This ambitious venture has succeeded in its aim of creating Qld's premier winery. The founding Morris family retained a leading architect to design the striking state-of-the-art winery; the state's foremost viticultural consultant to plant three major vineyards (in the Granite Belt); and the most skilled winemaker practising in Qld, Adam Chapman, to make the wine. It has a 200-seat restaurant, a wine club, and is firmly aimed at the tourist market, taking advantage of its situation, halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Exports to Sweden, Korea, Papua New Guinea, Hong Kong, China and Japan.

About

Located at Mount Cotton, Sirromet is home to more than just premium wine. A family owned and run winery, just a short drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast incorporates state of the art facilities, dining, wine tastings and a year-round calendar of entertainment.

In 2000, the cellar doors swung open to the public and is now recognised on the World stage, boasting over 880 awards for their exquisite wine collection which utilises traditional wine making methods along with new technology. The finest quality of wines can be sampled directly from Sirromet’s Cellar Door or many enjoy a behind the scenes tour, giving you a fuller appreciation of the Granite Belt’s most famous drops. The same philosophy Sirromet have in pursuit of winemaking excellence extends to the onsite restaurants, where you’ll find freshness and flavours with all menus prepared by executive and celebrity chef, Andrew Mirosch.

Restaurant Lurleen’s offers the ultimate fine dining experience, with Tuscan Terrace offering a more relaxed alfresco food experience both the perfect place to delight your senses surrounded by the rolling hills of the well-manicured Sirromet grounds. With something onsite to suit the whole family, you’ll be truly amazed at what you discover at Sirromet.
