Ballandean Estate Wines is Queensland's oldest family owned and operated winery and the Puglisi family have been making wine on the Estate since 1931. Located in the Granite Belt, Southern Downs, Queensland.

Ballandean Estate is a winery for all tourists with the winery open to the public from 9am to 5pm, 363 days per year. The spacious and comfortable tasting room as well as the relaxing Barrel Room Cafe make any visit to the Estate pleasant and satisfying. The cafe offers substantial yet affordable meals for the entire family to enjoy. Group catering has been an integral part of the business for over twenty years. In 2008, Ballandean Estate also opened The Gourmet Food Gallery, a hall of local and international products available for sample and sale 7 days per week.

The tradition of winemaking on Ballandean Estate was first established in 1930, when Mr Salvatore Cardillo brought his family to settle in the Stanthorpe area. With the flood of Italian immigrants who settled in certain parts of Queensland in the first half of the century came many customs and values from the homeland, including a love of good food and wine.

Today Ballandean Estate produces a large range of wines including alternative grape varieties such as Viognier and Sylvaner. In 2009 two new varieties were introduced to the range, Durif and Saperavi. The production facilities at Ballandean Estate are well-equipped and continual investment ensures that modern technology is well integrated.

Each year Ballandean Estate stages one of the largest cultural and tourism events on the Southern Downs, that is ‘Opera in the Vineyard'. This event presented jointly with the Stanthorpe Rotary Club, attracts around 2500 guests. The outdoor concert is performed on the permanent rock stage built to overlook the beauty of the vineyard and nearby National Park. This widely acclaimed, annual charity event benefits many Queensland charities.
