THE Granite Belt delivered a mouthful of flavour to Brisbane food and wine lovers over the weekend.

As part of the three-day Good Food and Wine Show the Granite Belt showcased to around 20,000 people.

Granite Belt Wine and Tourism marketing and business manager Sarah Reeves said the showcase was a collective effort of GBWT, food producers, wine makers, Stanthorpe State High School, award winning chefs, accommodation operators and the Queensland College of Wine and Tourism.

"Just over 6000 visitor guides were distributed, over 1000 signed up to receive the Granite Belt Wine Country e-news and over 4000 gourmet products were sampled," she said.

"From fresh peaches, nectarines and strawberries to organic lamb, pork belly, cheese platters with pastes, honey and saffron panna cotta and apple tart - the food was delicious and many people commented that the display was the best they had seen.

"It was also a great experience for the students to gain some real experience at one of the biggest events in the state.

"They were also fortunate to be able to mingle with celebrity chefs like George Calombaris of MasterChef.

"Thank you to the community for their support."
