Celebrate Queensland Wine Week by ‘Grazing the Granite Belt’

Celebrate Queensland Wine Week by ‘Grazing the Granite Belt’ with award winning wineries and brewery

Food, beer and wine lovers are invited to spend a weekend of sampling award winning StrangeBird wines and beer paired perfectly with locally sourced seasonal produce on the 16th and 17th May 2015 across the Granite Belt. 
Now in its fourth year, “Grazing the Granite Belt” is brought to you by Granite Belt Wine Country to celebrate Queensland wine week and features the best of the region’s produce in collaboration with award winning Granite Belt winemakers and Brewer. 
Granite Belt Wine & Tourism Marketing Manager Guy Cantrel said “Grazing the Granite Belt is an authentic and intimate event that brings our visitors closer to the winemakers, brewers and food crafters and enhances the unique experience that is the Granite Belt. We are excited that this event continues to bring Granite Belt winemakers and brewer together to showcase the amazing wine and produce on offer, and enthused that the specially designed menu is a true celebration of the seasonal harvest from our unique region,”
‘Grazers’ can elect to jump aboard the Filippo’s Tours Grazing Bus that rotates around the seven participating wineries and one brewery all day Saturday on an hourly basis, or opt to self drive and graze at their own pace on Saturday and Sunday.
Chair of the Granite Belt Wine Committee Sam Costanzo said “as a boutique wine region that focuses on lesser known varieties, the wine industry is really proud to be working together to deliver this collaborative approach to food and wine matching.”
This is a perfect opportunity to spend a weekend immersing in harvest, enjoying food, beer and wine direct from the source and getting an easily accessible food and wine matching experience from a number of different producers – all while being able to hear their individual stories and passions.
The paired food and beer/wine menu can be enjoyed at award winning Granite Belt wineries and brewery including Ballandean Estate, Golden Grove Estate, Hidden Creek Winery, Jester Hill Wines, Symphony Hill Wines, Heritage Estate Wines, Whiskey Gully Wines and Granite Belt Brewery.
