Granite Belt Elevated Taste

elevatedThe Elevated Taste Grazing the Granite Belt is set to be the ultimate event for foodies and wine lovers!

 On 21 and 22 April 2012, the Granite Belt promises a weekend of enjoying award winning wine, gourmet local produce and fabulous entertainment with a progressive long lunch graze.

Seven of the region's leading wineries will offer signature dishes perfectly matched with wine including:

Spicy lamb cutlet w/ warm Greek salad + Moroccan couscous matched w/ 2011 Jester Hill 2 Fools Cabernet Rosé

Duck + venison sausage w/ vine-ripened tomato salad + onion jam matched w/ 2006 Whiskey Gully Rep Red blend

Prosciutto wrapped, baked local Amiens figs stuffed w/ goat cheese served over balsamic dressed rocket matched w/ 2009 Robert Channon Pinot Gris

Decedent white chocolate + poached pear torte w/ raspberry coulis +vanilla ice cream w/ 2005 Ballandean Estate Late Harvest Sylvaner

There are two Granite Belt Graze pass options available; Self Graze ($58) or, for those who don't want to drive, take the Grazing Bus ($93).

Both passes include a Granite Belt elevated tasting glass, food tasting plate vouchers and wine vouchers.

Event goers will also receive a Grazing Passport - make a purchase at any participating winery cafe, get the grazing passport stamped and go into draw to win a mixed dozen of Granite Belt wines.

It doesn't matter where participants start or finish; they can visit one winery or seven.

President of the Queensland Wine and Industry Association and part-owner of Hidden Creek, Jim Barnes said, "This is a great opportunity for visitors to sample the best of the Granite Belt."

 "So get some friends together and experience a weekend you won't forget!" he said.

The event is part of the A+ Australian Wine Celebration - a unique occasion for Australians to celebrate the great wine created in their own backyard, as well as the people and places whom provide an authenticity and diversity unlike any other wine producing nation in the world.
