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 »

  • Pinotage is a Brady Bunch grape. It was created by enmeshing two previously unrelated grapes to create a brand new entity which possesses its own compelling characteristics. In viticultural language this is called a crossing. If you really want to get technical, a crossing results when two grapes, both grown from vitis vinifera parent seed, are ... Read More

  • Since today is actually the day, we're continuing our celebration of 30 years. The CFO (RBA - Chief Financial Officer, aka the one who works for the bank and deftly handles our finances) and I threw some strip steaks on the grill and roasted some zucc and potatoes. The wine I pulled from the wine fridge was one she brought back from a trip to It... Read More

  • I've been anxious to try some Windy Oaks NG I'm noticing a lot of people drinking it on Delectable and raving. One of these days!I've been busy the past few weeks helping out at the winery during harvest either on the production side or doing private tastings for Ancillary, Myriad and Carter. It afforded my the opportunity to share in some reall... Read More

  • Boy, today was just filled with activities.  First we stopped again at Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton VA to pick up a special order wine, then we headed over to Occoquan VA to enjoy lunch at The Bottle Stop, a wine bar that we've been to several times.  Following that it was back home for a few hours and then we went out to dinner and finall...

  • The caricatures of Mexico leave one feeling as though the Central American country is still stuck in the Wild West days of the 18th and 19th century: drug wars and kidnappings have ruled the headlines for the past half-decade.  Yet the country’s humble yet thriving wineries have been creeping up the oenophilic ladder of North American wines late...

  • Alesis is the "second" label of Rhys.  My understanding is that Rhys bottles wines from their "estate" vineyards under the Rhys label and wines from purchased grapes are bottled under the Alesia label.  I also think I read someplace that they are not going to offer any more Alesia bottlings.  I am not absolutely sure about the truth of the last ...

  • Yesterday was my weekly 'Cat Tuesday', where I feed rescue cats at three pet food stores from morning through the evening.  After it was all done I came home to relax with my sweetie and we opened these two wines to enjoy with a pasta dish she picked up on the way home from work (25 days to go).  We watched the latest 'Who's Line is it Anyway?' ...

  • Let’s just admit that, most likely, the closest thing that most American sports fans ever get to the Rugby World Cup is watching videos of Australian rugby player-turned NFLer Jarryd Hayne slicing and dicing his way through preseason defenses.  However, for the few of you who do love the sport and for the millions around the world who are watchi...

  • So D - the function is an interesting topic. In fact, it could be an interesting article to write, were one so inclined - the changes in wine appreciation over the past forty years. I enjoy reading wine books from the 1970s and earlier just to see what people were focused on at those times.So the tastevin obviously isn't a great way to smell win... Read More
