Sirromet Wines - Wine and Spirits Education Training

Introduction

ABOUT US

One of the great literary themes is the personal voyage of discovery and the joy that can be derived from casting off notional shackles and embracing new experiences. We invite you to ‘Open Up’ to Sirromet. We are proud to have collected over 800 prestigious national and international wine awards since opening in 2000.

For most of us, letting a wine ‘Open Up’ means allowing it to breathe and release its often complex flavours and aroma. Since quality wines begin on the vine, Sirromet attributes the flavour and quality of our wines to the exceptional fruit grown in our Granite Belt vineyards. With 100 hectares under vine, Sirrromet’s vineyards are located in the high altitude of Queensland’s renown Granite Belt region.

Situated at picturesque Mount Cotton, just a short drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Sirromet’s state of the art facilities offer food and wine lovers the ultimate winery experience - combining production, cellar door and 5-star restaurant, alive with unique architecture and breathtaking scenery. A visit to Sirromet is a promise of new adventures, new friendships and wonderful new discoveries.

There’s nothing more boring than being stuck in your ways. If you’re open to trying new things, Sirromet won’t disappoint. In fact, it will delight. And so will the memories you create when you ‘open up’ with Sirromet.

HISTORY

While on a visit to Victoria, Queensland entrepreneur and businessman, Terry Morris attended a dinner party with some of his friends. Terry mentioned that he had tried a great wine from Queensland’s Granite Belt to which his Victorian friends laughed and said “There’s no such thing as a great wine from Queensland.” This was the spark that Terry needed to create his vision for Sirromet.

Terry chose to land in the Granite Belt Region renowned for its unique combination of rich soil, high altitude and cool climate, providing the perfect location for growing grapes. Utilising both traditional methods and new technology, Sirromet produces exquisite quality wines recognised on the world stage.
