What is the granite belt?
The granite belt is a region of South-East Queensland Australia, part of the great dividing range. It typically has a high elevation and a slightly cooler climate when compared to the subtropical region. The rich granite in the area means that the soil is constantly being replenished with nutrients and minerals. This along with the cooler climate makes it perfect for growing fruit like apples and grapes. Grapes that eventually become the fantastic Sirromet Wines!
Who Owns Sirroment Winery?
The Sirromet is owned by Terry Morris who started it in 2000. It is a family run business and one of Queensland’s best wineries. Situated close to Brisbane and the Gold Coast on the Granite Belt of Queensland. He started the business after telling a friend that he had tried a great wine from Queensland. They responded by saying “there is no such thing” and laughing at him. So he started the Sirromet Winery and the rest is history! To date, the winery has amassed 900 awards!
How did Sirromet get the name?
The name comes from the man that started it all! Terrance Edward Morris, or “T.E. Morris”. Which when spelled backward becomes “Sirromet”. So while most people think it is something posh and french. It is actually something backward and kind of funny! So how do you pronounce it? “Si-ro-may” see it does sounds french!
