Our Iconic Barrels

A visit to the Granite Belt is not complete without seeing the oldest working barrels in Queensland.  These majestic 150-year-old German beer barrels have taken pride of place in the winery since 1971.  Filled with ageing Port and Liqueur Muscat, they could well be the most photographed icons on the Granite Belt.
