Ballandean Estate

A visit to the Granite Belt wouldn't be complete without stepping inside the rustic and spacious Ballandean Estate Cellar Door.

Pioneers and leaders of the Queensland Wine Industry, the Puglisi family lives and breathes wine. 

For over 80 years, we've been cultivating grapes, crafting wine and sharing it and we would love to share our world-class wines with you.

Our 100% estate-grown boutique wines are sustainably farmed on granite terroir. Our rich volcanic soils, cool climate and high altitude provide us with the perfect conditions to create both national and international award-winning wines.

We are home to the iconic Granite Belt event Opera in the Vineyard.  Our 26th Opera is to be held on the 6th of May 2018.  Tickets available on our website, the theme is Carnivale of Venice Masquerade.

The Gourmet Food Gallery

A fantastic gourmet experience. The gallery exhibits a vast array of foods produced in the Granite Belt by local food artisans as well as plenty of other gourmet delights.

The gallery is a must see for any food loving visitor to the Granite Belt.

The Iconic Barrels

A visit to the Granite Belt is not complete without seeing the oldest working barrels in Queensland.  These majestic 150 year old German Beer barrels have taken pride of place in the winery since 1971.  Filled with ageing Port and Liqueur Muscat they must be the most photographed icons on the Granite Belt.

The Barrelroom and Larder Dining

We welcome you warmly to The Barrelroom and hope you can appreciate the effort we put into designing a menu that is not only delicious, but mindful, clever and above all, respectful of the produce we utilise

Our friendly staff will ensure your stay is memorable.  You will find wines to suit all tastes and the best quality at reasonable prices.
