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.

  • A few months ago, I was minding my own business, mostly, when I received a phone call from my good friends here at Snooth, wondering if I would be interested in heading to Bordeaux for a few days and write a story about my experiences. The trip would focus solely on sweet wines from the region, or what wine types frequently refer to as “dessert ... Read More

  • With Christmas lunch now on the radar, Snoothers who enjoy cooking are already thinking about a wine match with the inevitable smoked salmon starter. For French Sauvignon Blanc lovers Sancerre is a popular choice but how about ringing the changes this year by pulling a Sancerre lookalike off the shelf. Cheverny and Touraine Sauvignon Blanc may n... Read More

  • According to a YouGov poll, forty-one percent of Americans enjoy wine with Thanksgiving dinner. It's no wonder we spend so much time planning our drink menus. Turkey Day wines have been discussed on Snooth at length over the past ten years. Tastes have evolved to include more than just the mainstays. Traditions have been shattered, and most meal...

  • Also looking good was this earlier circular from Chambers Street. Oregon this time. Keep scanning down the list, Cameron makes good juice at several levels.    Linus the dog, barrels aging in the cellar, and Tom Sivilli and John Paul bottling the 2016 Rosé. Linus the dog is a ruffian purple heeler (cross of a blue and red heeler), and the protog... Read More

  • Al,Canoehead (cellar tracker handle) was there!  He just completed his level 3 WSET this year in Tuscany (lucky guy!).  He actually said the Red Icon was the wine of the night.  Maybe we just had cab sav burnout! I gave you the 2010 (or 11?) Painted Rock Red Icon, which unfortunately (both 10 and 11) were not good vintages for BC generally, thou... Read More
