Friday Drinks on Radio 4BC 3 October - Granite Belt

I was in the Granite Belt region so it was more than appropriate to give the low down.

The vast majority of the wineries are small operators punching out tiny quantities and most of these don't have distribution in the retail market, though this is steadily changing. More and more are becoming available in restaurants too.

The Granite Belt has really hits its straps in the last few years producing some excellent wines which are now being recognised nationally and internationally.

Shiraz, Chardonnay and Mediterranean varieties perform best.
