Granite Belt Wine Trail

更多地点

At 1000 metres elevation, the air seems fresher, the sky more blue. Discover a landscape of dramatic beauty and diversity with 4 distinct seasons – log fires (and occasional snow) in winter, cool summer nights where you can escape the swelter of the coast.

The Granite Belt is not only the highest wine region in Australia, its unique terroir with its longer growing season and deep granitic gravels produces wines of elegance and complexity.

Follow the Granite Belt wine trail to discover a variety of cellar doors offering a personal and friendly wine experience, where you are likely to meet the vignerons and winemakers who grow the fruit or make the wine you are sampling.

The region also has a growing reputation as one of Australia’s top producers of alternative variety wines - known as Strange Birds. To be called an alternative, a variety must represent not more than 1% of the total bearing vines in Australia as defined by Wine Australia. Enjoyed in Europe for generations, these alternative varieties are now emerging as Australian favourites due to their ability to match perfectly with our food preferences.
