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 »

  • Wine has the power to overcome just about anything. It has been known to conquer distance, time, and taste. (Remember when Americans only drank Sherry?) Now, the Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) is ensuring that wine defeats the barriers of language as well.Western methods of wine interpretation can been daunting to native Chinese spea...

  • There’s nothing quite like having wine friends. After all, our mutual topic of interest is a social lubricant. But there’s so much more to it, as Snooth’s recent blogger trip will attest. Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More

  • I would never argue against Zinfandel with burgers.  Works every time.Burgers in this household are intentionally served as simple, low-cost meals.  So, they are made from the "standard" packaged 80/20 ground beef.  I like catsup (I'm brand agnostic.) on my burgers, which, of course, introduces sugar to my sandwich.  (If we have french fries wit...
