We arrived and went inside, to a very nice bar. We where greeted as we walked in the door, by a very happy and pleasant young lady, unfortunately we didn’t get her name but she had only worked here for 2 weeks. We asked if they had Sweet wines, Do We Have Sweet wines, she answered, in an enthusiastic reply. Would you like to taste them . This young lady knew her wines, and was very enthusiastic, to give us what we wanted. The wines are without doubt where fantastic, and we bought a very good selection of the Sweet Wines, and Port. To the Young lady, thank you so much We recommend this winery to everyone.

We were due to arrive at 3pm. We called 3 hours in advance to ask if it would be OK that we would be around 20 minutes late. We were told over the phone this wouldn't be an issue. We arrived at 3.15pm and were seated. We had paid $80 for a picnic basket and the picnic basket included a bottle of wine so we were able to do a tasting prior to selecting our wine. It was more of a shotting session rather than a tasting. We had barely taken a sip of the first before the waitress was at our table pressuring us to pour the second. She was clearly stressed and quite rude. I appreciate that with covid, space and time is tight, though if there was an issue they could have told us over the phone and to be honest, we would have gone elsewhere. Perhaps we had been spoilt by some of the smaller, more attentive and to be honest better quality wineries we had visited in earlier the day. After we had been forced to select our wine in under ten minutes we were told to 'go around the back' for our picnic. It really wasn't the romantic setting we were hoping. When we realised the 'back' was behind the toilets, stunk and we had only been given a crap plastic picnic 'blanket' barely big enough to fit on on the dry grass, we decided to sit out front on the tables. The picnic food itself was lovely but to be honest the whole experience prior had already ruined it. Overall this wasnt a great experience. It may be one of the most popular in the area but I have no idea why.

I loved everything about my experience at Ballandean Estate. I visited Stanthorpe about a month ago with a group of friends, and we came across this winery. When we were told it was only $5 for a full wine tasting, I nearly fell over. I cannot rave enough about the service - all the ladies are LOVELY. They are information, interactive and were the highlight of my Stanthorpe experience. The wine tasting itself is very thorough and detailed - Steph was extremely helpful when we asked specific questions about the wine. If you visit Stanthorpe, you have to visit Ballandean Estate Wines!
