Our story began
when Terry Morris, Queensland entrepreneur and businessman, was in Victoria attending a dinner party with 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 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 and in 2000 we opened our doors to the public. Utilising traditional methods and new technology, Sirromet produces exquisite quality wines recognised on the world stage.
Sirromet is passionate about environmentally sustainable wine production. Our initiatives include responsible water use, waste recycling, energy conservation, re-vegetation, wildlife conservation, and eco-friendly farming practices.
We are committed to reducing our dependence on mains water, by collecting and purifying rainwater for potable use and dam water for irrigation.
All green waste, cardboard and paper from the winery and restaurants – is recycled through an onsite worm farm for later use as fertiliser. Plastic and glass waste is also recycled off-site.
Sirromet continues to innovate to increase efficiencies and reduce wastage. From smarter computerised refrigeration to use of modern “one-pass” filtration systems, recycling waste heat to make hot water and reducing our carbon footprint via 200kW of solar PV, our commitment is to make wine of the highest quality without compromising our environmental values.
