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 »

  • Here in the United States we are on a first-name basis with our wine grapes. The majority of casual wine drinkers understand what “Merlot”, “Moscato”, and “Cabernet” mean. Nowadays “Pinot” and even “Riesling” are familiar pals too. This is largely because the United States and other New World regions label their wines by varietal rather than geo... Read More

  • I've started working on the signs Sandra and I will carry this Saturday at the 'Woman's March on Washington' event in which we protest the presidency of Trump.  You guys know how we feel about him and what he did to get elected, so this might be just the start of protesting for us.  In any case, a nice red wine (2013 Medlock Ames Estate Red) got...

  • I don't know about that Fox but you're right, I was interested in the poster's version.RCKR - Bikavér is produced in both Eger and Szeksárd. Liszt, who was Hungarian, used to drink the Szeksárd version and there's a producer there now who is making a version in honor of Liszt. It's pretty good too. Egri just means from Eger. IMO, the Szeksárd ve... Read More

  • Carménère is an old grape variety from the Gironde. DNA analysis suggests that it’s a cross between Cabernet Franc and Gros Cabernet (which is itself a distant relative of Cabernet Franc). Fortunately for our collective palates, when it comes to wine grape parentage, breeding with a relative can be a very good thing. Carménère is a highly refine... Read More

  • Were those cases stashed for posterity or just forgotten? Let's see, in 1978, I moved from California to MA.  The Red Sox and Yankees had a one game playoff.  Bucky Dent hit a home run to win it for the Yanks.  Keith Moon died that fall.  Earlier in the year there was a big blizzard in Boston.  (Part of how we came to live there.)  I crossed the...
