Granite Belt Wine Tasting Roadshow Toowoomba

14 premium wineries from the Granite Belt. Great crowd. Great night.

The Granite Belt premium wine producers showcased the regions fantastic wines at the Empire Theatre in Toowoomba last night. Thanks to all the people from Toowoomba who came along. The roadshow event is a great way to sample the gems of the Granite Belt wineries all under one roof.  More events are planned so keep an eye out for other events.

The event was put on by the Granite Belt Wine Tourism group www.granitebeltwinecountry.com.au and sponsored by Maxi-Tours and the Toowoomba Chronicle.

Our Gold medal winning Chardonnay was a popular choice for tasting as was our new release Sauvignon Blanc and of course our Sparkling wines.

Represented at the Roadshow were Pyramids Road, Girraween Estate (that’s us!), Ballandean Estate, Golden Grove Estate, Granite Ridge Wines, Ridgemill Estate, Felsberg Winery, Hidden Creek Winery, Twisted Gum Wines, Symphony Hill Wines, Lucas Estate, Tobin Wines, Jester Hill Wines and Summit Estate.

All great Granite Belt producers, some great wines to be sampled and a really supportive and informed wine loving crowd.

Girraween Estate 2011 Chardonnay wins Gold and Best Queensland White Wine of the Australian Small Winemakers Show

A great result for our very first entry into a wine show. Our newly branded Girraween Estate 2011 Unwooded Chardonnay has been selected by a panel of industry expert judges under the Chairmanship of David Morris of Morris of Rutherglen as worthy of a Gold medal in last week’s Australian  Small Winemakers Show. The wine was also selected as the best Queensland white wine of the show – an amazing achievement!

The Australian Small Winemakers is a highlight of the Australian show circuit and attracts boutique producers from all around Australia and New Zealand. The quality of the wines was very good this year with 1750 wines entered.

Our Giraween Estate 2011 Unwooded Chardonnay is available through Cellar Door and on-line at www.girraweenestate.com.au/shop/
