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 »

  • Twisted O & DMCKER, thanks for the suggestions. I just returned from Moldova where my wife and I visited Cricova and Milestii Mici wineries. I was very impressed with the tour of Cricova, which includes a healthy pour of several of their finest wines at the end served with Moldovan placinte, a traditional regional food. The tour costs about $25 ... Read More

  • We had a white wine from Viserny last week. That's Viserny there in the photo. It's just down the road from where we live. And you would never guess but it's the most important wine village in the area. The wine we tasted was a well-made-home-made inscrutable, and enough of a curiosity that we wanted to meet the person who made it. So we got an ... Read More

  • Al, ordering from Limerick Lane is a no-brainer.  The worst LL wine I have ever had was very good.  Yes, you have to figure shipping into the per bottle cost.  So, I agree that it makes no sense to order a single bottle.  Spread the cost of shipping over multiple bottles.I'm pretty excited about the mailing, next week.  I'm probably going to bre...

  • As wine lovers who among us doesn't enjoy doing horizontal tastings of wines from a single vineyard? That would probably be none of us yet the opportunity to do this doesn't surface very often. I remember doing a Limerick Lane Zinfandel horizontal last year with 6 takes on the same fruit. Other than that I'm at a loss. It's a great opportunity t... Read More

  • ProWein, the annual wine and spirits fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the high water mark for wine brands, regions, and drinkers worldwide. Nearly every wine producing area you’ve ever heard of (or not heard of) is represented at this event. The event is so huge that it should have its own postal code. This is one of those rare instances in life ... Read More

  • Thank you all for your responses.  I will take a look at these.  I do have to say that the wines they sent me this month really were very good.  There really is a different texture to the wines and they just taste smoother than what I am used to.  They mention they have lower alcohol (12.5%), less nitrites, and they are less likely to give you a...
