Golden Grove Estate

Brisbane & Around

Established in 1946 and awarded five stars by Australian wine critic James Halliday, this family-run estate practically owns the vermentino style in the Granite Belt, producing an exceptional rendition. Indeed, it even makes a sparkling version. Golden Grove's tempranillo is also outstanding, while its barbera is generally good. The nero d'avolo is arguably less impressive.
