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.

    This was one of the best red wines I have had for quite some time, I really enjoyed it. You can chill it or drink it room temperature. Not too sweet and not too dry, just right. Read More

  • If you can find a copy of the Wine Lovers Companion, a nice book small enough to fit in a handbag, it's a great place to start.  Excellent section about tasting terminology, a section on how to read wine labels--but you'll need a PhD to start decoding those German wines.  A to Z of terms, regions, grape varieties. you name it, so you don't have ...

  • DM - Interesting story regarding the Pio Cesare.  I didn't ask our guests what sort of history they had with the wine.  They knew the theme for the wine diner was Italian / pasta, so an Italian wine was expected.  Anyway, it was tasty.  It's probably not a good idea to drink so many bottles at one sitting, as we all know that our ability to dist...
