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 »

  • Retailers report, and empirical evidence demonstrates, that Valentine's Day can be one of the busiest holidays for the wine and spirits business. Wine menu planning is a fun exercise but sometimes the rigors of workaday reality get in the way of our good time. And when it comes to wine, price doesn’t need to indicate how much you care. Wine is o... Read More

  • The country of Georgia has produced wine for more than 8,000 vintages. While spending a recent week there it was easy to see how deeply embedded wine is in the nation’s culture. More than 500 native grape varieties exist and their production methodologies are distinct. At first blush that makes it seem like everything is old news, in a sense it’... Read More

  • I usually grab a Pinot Noir with lamb.  What do you drink with pork? I really think that you can enjoy any red wine with lamb, Al.  I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon.  Somebody else might prefer Temprnillo.  If I came to your house and you offered me a PN to go with a Sandra-prepared rack of lamb, I would gratefully accept it.  However, I know you hav...

  • Symington is an iconic name in wine. For over four generations the Symington name has been synonymous with high quality port. If the name is unfamiliar their port houses are certainly not; Graham’s, Cockburn, Dow, and Warre are among the best producers in the world. After spending week with the Symington’s I came away with a few observations: Fi... Read More

  • I mean we've had a ridiculously warm winter, this year.  Temps in the 70s have been typical, and temps in the 80s have been common.  Yesterday, we had our first real rain since last spring.  So, we prettended that we were bunkered in with our hearty pot roast and red wine.  It's supposed to rain again, today, but I would not be surprised if it w...
