This Weekend Ryn and Cordie Join Us Elevated Taste - Grazing the Granite Belt

Ryn and Cordie are joining us this weekend for Elevated Taste - Grazing the Granite Belt. Have you got your tickets?

A progressive-type long-lunch through the region; seven of the Granite Belt's leading wineries will offer signature dishes perfectly matched with wine including:

  • Spicy lamb cutlet w/ warm Greek salad + Moroccan couscous matched w/ 2011 Jester Hill 2 Fools Cabernet Rosé
  • Duck + venison sausage w/ vine-ripened tomato salad + onion jam matched w/ 2006 Whiskey Gully Rep Red blend
  • Prosciutto wrapped, baked local Amiens figs stuffed w/ goat cheese served over balsamic dressed rocket matched w/ 2009 Robert Channon Pinot Gris
  • Decadent white chocolate + poached pear torte w/ raspberry coulis + vanilla ice cream w/ 2005 Ballandean Estate Late Harvest Sylvaner

It doesn’t matter where you start or finish; you can visit one winery or seven.

There are two Granite Belt Graze pass options available; Self Graze ($58) or, for those who don't want to drive, the Grazing Bus ($93). On Saturday, the Grazing Buses will pick-up (and return) from Stanthorpe and the main villages in Granite Belt, visiting each venue approximately every 35-45 minutes.

Both passes include a Granite Belt elevated tasting glass, food tasting plate vouchers and wine vouchers.  Event goers will also receive a Grazing Passport - make a purchase at any participating winery cafe, get the grazing passport stamped and go into draw to win a mixed dozen of Granite Belt wines.

We promise award winning wine, gourmet local produce and fabulous entertainment; so get some friends together and experience a weekend you won’t forget!

Book your tickets here!

This event is part of the A+ Australian Wine Celebration - a unique occasion for Australians to celebrate the great wine created in their own backyard, as well as the people and places whom provide an authenticity and diversity unlike any other wine producing nation in the world.
