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 »

  • Time for some horizontal tasting.  This topic is specifically to address commonalities and differences between the same grape varietal (or blend) and same year of bottling, but at different wineries or different vineyards of the same winery.  Take a picture of your two or more bottle comparisons and tell us which is better.  If you can, provide ...

  • Last night we enjoyed a nice wine dinner with our neighbors (Rick and Debbie), this time it was at their house and Debbie served a cold soup and then cod.  We usually have fish when they make dinner because she doesn't eat red meat, but she also prefers red wine, so it's red wine with a white fish.  Anyway, the wines were excellent.  Our discuss...

  • Writing is a cathartic exercise. The same can be said about tasting wine. Amazing things will happen when the two practices are merged. Tasting notes are an opportunity to sharpen your palate and uncover curious flavors. Pineapple tops? Dentist’s office chair? A laundry list of chemical compounds commingle in your glass to create unique tasting ... Read More

  • EM - For some reason, I've burned out my taste buds for Zinfandel.  I must have had one too many, or perhaps one that I didn't like so much.  I know we have at least 50 Zins in our wine cellar, so I hope I recover.  Now the Limerick Lane Zinfandel that I tasted a while back was pretty good.  I didn't buy any from the recent mailing mostly becaus...

  • That was a nice bottle.  By sharing the bottle I mean we bought it and shared it.  We had another dinner with that couple a few nights later, towards the end of the cruise, and they bought a $40 Tempranillo while we tried another $100+ wine.  Some people don't appreciate higher end wines and that's ok I suppose.  Anyway, we are home now (returne...

  • In many ways Greece is the ancient epicenter to modern society. Governmental structures, intellectual gatherings, food and wine celebrations, all stem from Greece. As much a part of historic Greek culture as gods and goddesses is Greek wine. Dating back to approximately the third century BC, evidence suggests wine was an integral part of Greek s... Read More

  • If you have any familiarity with Italian wines it’s likely that the name Bertani is well known to you. Located around Verona, the Valpolicella region is most famous for Amarone and other wines produced using variations of the passito method. Bertani stands as the best known and most traditional producer of this style of wines. I spent some time ... Read More

  • You know the scene. He walks into the wine bar, orders a glass of Macon Villages and spends the next half hour telling you he's an expert on Burgundy. Well, don't believe him, Burgundy's hallowed vineyards hold mysteries far beyond mere mortal's understanding. That said, the code to this magical region is there to be cracked! There's no better w...
