Granite Belt to Rival Barossa & Margaret River

While locals have long argued that the Granite Belt has the potential to rival other wine super-regions, others are quickly catching on. A recent feature article by wine guru Max Allen in The Weekend Australian listed the Granite Belt as Australia's "Future Region" for wine making.

Allen's observations that the Granite Belt has terroir in spades, delighted those in the Queensland wine capital in and around the main town of Stanthorpe.

The article highlighted the cultural and geographic uniqueness of the region as becoming more and more attractive to Australia's increasingly savvy wine market. Matched by growing specialisation by regional winemakers, the Granite Belt is set to become recognised nationally for quality, uniqueness and historical value.
