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.


We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Courier-Mail Best Queensland Wine of the show at the prestigious 2017 Royal Queensland Wine Show.

We knew our 2015 Shiraz Viognier was pretty good and weren’t surprised that it received a gold medal. But to gain the trophy for the best Queensland Wine was a pleasant surprise and is icing on the cake.

Another great result for Just Red Wines at the 2017 RASQ wine show in Toowoomba. We were awarded two silver medals: one for our latest release of 2016 Tannat and another for our 2016 Daily Red Shiraz. Our 2015 Shiraz Viognier was also awarded a bronze medal.

Our 2015 Tannat has won yet another trophy. This time it was the Champion Alternative Variety Red Wine at the 2016 Queensland Wine Awards. As well as a gold medal for the Tannat, our Shiraz Viognier 2015 and Cabernet Merlot 2015 also were awarded bronze medals at this event.
