We are a boutique winery in the Granite Belt region of Queensland. As our name suggests we are specialists in red wine. We are very easy to find. Just turn east into Eukey Rd at the Ballandean Post Office and we're exactly three km from the New England Highway. Although most people associate Queensland with warm subtropical beaches, we are in a unique climatic region just west of the Great Dividing Range near the New South Wales border. Our altitude of almost 900m provides cool nights in the summer and very cool winters. The warm Queensland sunshine is particularly suited to growing red wine and hence we have chosen to specialise. Our soils are decomposing granite similar to the best soils of the Hermitage appellation of the Cotes du Rhone in France. Hermitage is the home of Syrah or Shiraz as we call it here in Australia. Our summer temperatures are also similar to this region and therefore Syrah is our flagship wine. Through experimentation we have also found that some of our soils produce an excellent Read more »

  • I've posted on this Tapena Tempranillo in the Weekday Wines. This wine retails between $8-$10 dollars. At that price point it's a really good bottle of wine. I have been buying this wine in the $4-$5 range for the past year. Well balanced with red fruit, plum, nice acidity, medium body, a little tart on the short to medium finish. Just an excell...

  • OK, as a Social Security pensioner, I'm as interested in <$20 wines as much as the next guy.  However, the attitude that the old world < $20 wines are ipso facto better than the < $20 domestic wines does not seem reasonable to me.It may very well be that the <$20 European wines that make it across the Atlantic are, generally, better that most of...

  • Great responses from you guys.  I too love the Spanish wines and find their price point here on the east coast to be quite a good deal.  I think I first started with Spanish wines at the Jaleo's restaurants in Crystal City (Arlington VA) and Washington DC.  Now I did drink the second bottle you see at the opening of this topic.  This $15 wine wa...

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.When you find a nice wine tha...

  • Last night Matt Denny and I attended the Napa Grape Growers Association Annual Dinner at The Ranch Winery in St Helena. As wine events go is was kinda typical with a reception hour followed by introductions, Grower of the Year Award presentation and dinner. Just a bit more upscale than my Sonoma events. Wines poured by the glass during the recep... Read More

  • Another Zin. Have you ever had a wine the whole of which was greater than the sum of its parts?  Well I now have.  I think it might just be my psychological state.  The house is still just a mess from the project, and it will be continuing, tomorrow.  I'm hating the disruption in my routine.  So, sitting down with this glass of wine brings order...

  • So that backs up the theory that most Zinfandel's don't age well?We spent the morning at an NSO rehearsal, then went further into the district for a late lunch at Ocean Prime.  It was our first dining experience here and we found it quite nice.  Sandra heard that the Obama's had dined here recently.The performance was decent (being a rehearsal, ...

  • The Urban Winery scene in Seattle is booming.  The movement began with six wineries combining forces to create the South Seattle Artisan Wineries.  These wineries were early pioneers on the Seattle wine landscape, pooling resources for marketing and all agreeing to be open the second Saturday of each month.The SSAW association included: Cadence,...

  • I panicked!No, we just felt like some red. I misjudged the style a bit. Okay, so we had something pretty interesting last night.  I think there's a story behind it.  It was a Marsanne/Roussane/Viognier blend from Alder Springs.  Not just the very large vineyard owned by the guy who invented the California Cooler. He grows all kinds of grapes up ... Read More
