Puglisi family vignerons, since 1932
We’ve been cultivating grapes, crafting wine and sharing it for over ninety years, and we’d love to share our world-class wines with you.
The Ballandean Estate family of wines reflect the strengths of the Granite Belt's unqiue terroir, cool climate and high altitiude. Our Shiraz and Merlot vines are some of the oldest in Australia. We produce a unique range of alternative varietals, Strange Birds™. A wine pioneer, Angelo’s vinicultural vision has delivered 13 new Strange Birds™ for the Granite Belt Geographical Indication.
Each parcel of fruit is vinified with minimal intervention and bottled within our modern winery, situated at our home vineyard overlooking the breathtaking Ballandean Valley.
Our winemaking philosophy is founded on the belief that great wines are made in the vineyard, must be an authentic expressions of place, and are a labour of love from a family that lives and breathes wine.
The Granite Belt’s viticultural significance is recognised and protected as a wine producing region under its unique GI (Geographical Indication).
