Wine on Monday

Well, it's raining in the Granite Belt today and we are very glad for our decision to finish our harvest last week. All of our grapes are safely in the winery - "doing their thing" and transforming into some delicious drops for us all to enjoy in a few months and years. We are sure there are also a few sore heads in the district today after the huge success that was our first Pranzo Italiano in the Barrelroom Cafe. Congratulations to chefs Matt and Bobbi Wells for creating a wonderful meal and atmosphere in the Cafe - the food was absolutely fabulous and we are already taking bookings for the next Pranzo events in July, October & December. We are also very pleased to announce that the Mercure chain has once again released their Grand Vins Autumn Wine List and we have been included with the 2007 Generation 3. Ballandean Estate is the only winery to be included on every list that has been created since the lists began.
