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 »

  • Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More

  • Today we went to a Total Discovery wine tasting at TW free of charge for its high level rewards members...... Tasted 9 Red Italian Wines between $13-$47. We just don't get it with the Italian Wines as maybe one Barolo was ok but not at $35. Came back home and went with something very reliable and it did not disappoint! A Cab lover's Merlot!  Read More

  • Let me just slap down anybody who might want to call be a baby killer.  Go pound sand. I have heard the opinion that the Geyserville bottling is the most age-worthy of the various Ridge Zin-based bottlings.  Based on this one sample, my response is "Why wait?"  This is emminently drinkable--serious upfront red berry fruit notwithstanding--I can ...

  • I am somewhat naive, given my lack of intelligence.  Be that as it may, I can still enjoy wine and pouring wine at the Crystal City (VA) Wine in the Water Park events!  This past Friday evening was special because one guy, who kept coming back for another glass of Bordeaux (100 % Merlot in this case) actually proposed to his fiance at the event....

  • Put all the wine at the bottom of your refrigerator? Pull as needed and allow to warm-up a bit before drinking.....Leave them out at room temp which would be 74-75 degrees for me? And give them a quick 15 min cooling before drinking.....   Read More

  • I did not really know much about wine when I started my junior year abroad studying in Strasbourg, France. At the time I was far more worried about the inebriating effect of wine than I was about aromas of pear skin or tayberry jam. In fact, I was more of a beer guy then, and I can recall several instances when a group of us would stop by the ga... Read More

  • Better wines today. 2010 Habit Red Wine taking the cake tonight. This is one of the better dry reds I've had in a while. Have been holding on to it for a couple few years, so it was nice to see some bottle age pay off.  Really nice freshness, bold red fruits, discreet oak, solid tannins and a nice overall complexity to it. This is mainly a Caber... Read More
