Since quality wines begin on the vine, Sirromet attributes the flavour and quality of our wines to the exceptional fruit grown in our three Granite Belt vineyards. Sirromet’s vineyards are located in the high country of Queensland’s renowned Granite Belt wine region.
Located at latitude of 28.6556°S and longitude 151.9325°E, approximately three hours’ drive south west of Brisbane, the Granite Belt, was formed by an ancient tectonic uplift that forced a significant granite mass 820m above sea level.
Over time, softer rocks and soils have eroded, leaving a clearly identifiable granite plateau. Due to its elevation, this plateau experiences some of Australia’s coldest winters. The sub-zero temperatures cause water that has been absorbed in exposed granite boulders and rocks to freeze and expand, forcing mineral particles into the soil. This annual soil enrichment allows local vineyards and orchards to grow the highest quality produce with unique, rich flavours. With 100 hectares under vine Sirromet is the most awarded Granite Belt producer.
