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 »

  • D, not everything winds up on the internet, at least not via the usual mechanisms.  Being local can help.  Shiners, closeout specialists in the neighborhood, calls from friends, there's stuff that comes in small quantities with "secret" backstory even now.Okay, here are a couple that you won't find east of Reno (I think I used that before, and w...

  • Hello All,I am hosting a baby shower for my sister. It will be all women. I am not much of a drinker myself and would like some input. I will be giving out 7 prizes throughout Brunch, and each prize will come with a bottle of wine or champaign. What would be a good prize? Also, since Im purchasing 7 of them, I'd like to keep it under $200.00. Th... Read More

  • I remember mine completely, just  like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded.  What remains vivid is the experience.  The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976.  Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot.  It was owned by a WW2 refuge...

  • RBA - Never thought you didn't look for good deals, we all probably look long and hard at a "steal" wine. and occasionally pull the trigger.  I drink a glass or two of red wine just about every day.  The problem with that is it totals about 180+ bottles of wine a year (that includes nights & afternoons when we entertain).To drink wines that are ...

  • Barolo may be Italy’s most famous red but surprisingly it hails from a very small vineyard region. Tucked into the top northwest corner, just south of the medieval town of Alba in the heart the Langhe region of Piemonte, it’s barely 8 kilometres wide. The vineyards are breathtaking. The snowcapped Alps form a distant backdrop to a series of hill... Read More

  • I always carry stuff vertically, but perhaps holding things on their sides is the recommended method? (Okay, here go the Apple fanboy attacks.  I brought it on myself, in the sense that anyone who calls Trump on his stuff is waiting to be harassed and insulted.  Heck, if they are female, he'll do it without provocation.)Okay, I am sure I missed ...

  • I suppose that there are some Washington wines made from Bordeaux grapes that are unworthy, but, thankfully, it seems that they keep those for themselves and a lot of good stuff gets smuggled past the border.Drank syrah, tonight.  I guess I'm breaking another thread rule, but maybe its weekend in Bora Bora or someplace.Just a terrific wine.  It'...

  • This afternoon was special for us.  We attended the 'Fete de la Flur' event at our only wine club here in Virginia, RdV Vineyards.  This was all about celebrating the flowering of the vines, but it was still a little early for the flowers to be showing themselves due to the recent cold weather and two weeks of rain. Rutger was there to discuss t... Read More

  • MJET - Here's a list of wines that are currently out there (out of 1000's) from just one place.  All of are age worthy, most drink well early, some drink better after a year or but all sit well for anywhere from 7-8 to 15-20. Here it is, by the way I went with a $25 - $50 range - I know you spent $75 on bottle you weren't sure about - but DMCKER... Read More

  • "I don't think we should be at leisure to change the intent of the thread." Good point. Hey BTW - sometimes my car just dies after I've been at a stop sign or red light. I replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter and it doesn't seem to be an electrical problem. Any ideas? Pinot Noir, it's the answer to everything Greg! ;-) Read More
