Great news, that our very popular 2021 Shiraz Viognier has been awarded a gold medal at the 2022 Queensland Wine Awards. It was also popular with the stewards at the show who awarded us the trophy for Stewards Choice – Granite Belt!

We are pleased to announce that our 2021 Tannat has won a gold medal at the 2021 Queensland wine awards. This again proves that our decision to plant Tannat ten years ago was a good one. It has produced a consistently excellent wine year after year. Our 2021 blend of CMT (Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot – Tannat) also did well winning a bronze medal at these awards.

Tony has just published a new book. It is a practical guide to growing winegrapes in the Granite Belt. The book has been some time in the making but the Covid lockdown in 2020 provided the opportunity to get it finished. The book is available from the cellar door or from several local outlets including the Ballandean Store, Nutrien Ballandean, the Queensland College of Wine Tourism and the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre.
