Located on the idyllic Mount Cotton, family owned and run winery Sirromet is now offering Mandarin dedicated tours to visitors.

Owned and created by businessman Terry Morris, the venue officially opened its doors in 2000. Its state-of-the-art facilities include production, bottling, packaging services, marketing and administration, Cellar Door, Restaurant Lurleen, and spaces for corporate functions and weddings.

Using traditional methods and newly available technology, Sirromet has since become a world renowned and award-winning winery with 886 international and national wins to its name.

With visitor numbers continually growing each year, the introduction of tourist based experiences has become integral to this business.

Behind the scenes tours now occur on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, where guests are shown the winery in detail, given insight to the winemaking process and offered a private wine tasting at its conclusion.

The tours are also designed to enhance the existing home delivery service already offered. This system allows visitors to purchase wine for home delivery and Chinese distributers have been made aware of this.

With more than 6000 Chinese guests expected to visit Sirromet this year alone, tourism has become an extremely significant part of its annual revenue. Since 2013, Chinese visitor numbers have grown by 59 per cent with matching home delivery sales, according to Sirromet.

General Manager Rod Hill states, “With significant growth in Chinese visitors to Australia forecast, Sirromet is focussed on providing multiple wine and food experiences that showcase fantastic locally sourced produce matched to premium wines from our Granite Belt vineyards.”

All tours are hosted by WSET qualified guides, and Cantonese, Taiwanese and Japanese speaking tours are available to guests upon request.
