We invite you to ‘Open Up’ to Sirromet. Recently recognised as a 5-star winery by James Halliday, we are proud to have collected over 700 prestigious national and international wine awards since opening in 2000.

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.
