Sirromet Winery

Published July 19th 2011
When Jesus and his apostles sat down to tuck into their famous "last supper," you can guarantee Judas Iscariot was mighty glad that wine was on the menu— if only to detract from the dastardly mood of betrayal in the air.

Humans have in fact been partaking in a casual tipple for millennia and let's just say there's a reason why our French friends over in Europe produce approximately five tonnes of the stuff every year.

Australian wines are also earning their stripes in the international market, but one need not travel to the Barossa or Hunter Valleys for a top drop. Brisbanites should look no further than Mt Cotton's celebrated Sirromet Winery, located just 30 minutes from the city centre.

Visitors will notice the sprawling picturesque vineyards before even hitting the front door of the establishment which has picked up over 500 wine awards in the 11 years since opening its doors.

Sirromet offers visitors a chance to tour the winery and learn just how the humble grape becomes a taste sensation.

Particularly eager winery-goers are also given the opportunity to turn critic-for-a-day and taste wines until they're dizzy in the head and can no longer distinguish a merlot from a cabernet sauvignon.

There's also the fantastic Restaurant Lurleens to sample a culinary accompaniment to all those fine wines and the opportunity to buy Sirromet labels direct from the cellar.

Guaranteed to make for a memorable day of drink, dining and top service—a visit to Sirromet is a must for any Brisbane wine aficionado or even casual wine drinker.

Just be sure to organise a ride home.

Sirromet is located at 850-938 Mt Cotton Road, Mt Cotton and opens its doors daily between 9.30am and 4pm.

I went there about a month ago for a coffee with friends. I was delighted to see a couple of wallabies hopping through the vineyard, you wouldn't see that in France.
