Barambah produces hand-crafted wines from world class pastoral land in the South Burnett, Queensland. In 1861, Queensland’s first Governor, Sir George Bowen, when he visited the South Burnett declared that it was ‘the greatest pastoral district of the whole colony’. Barambah in the South Burnett has, for generations, exemplified first class produce – its future is first class wine… pure quality, pure Queensland. In order to produce ‘wine without compromise’ we have sourced the best winemaking products and put together the best possible team of professionals.

Nuova Scuola, QLD  167 Tipperary Rd, Redgate QLD 4605
At Nuova Scuola we believe it is time to throw aside tradition and let go of the over thrashed varieties that fill the rows of bottle shops everywhere. Its time to embrace a new way of thinking about wine! We think it is about time more of us get our lips around some locally grown versions of a few of the fantastic old world varieties that the rest of the world has been clued into since ancient times but we have forgotten! We have taken the plunge in the beautiful South Burnett in Queensland and we are starting to make our own wines based on this philosophy. We began with small parcels of Barbera, Nebbiolo and Sangiovese, and have since added Tempranillo and Viognier, not only because they are filled with amazing flavours and textures, but also because they are so much better suited to our emerging regions and grow so fantastically in our new world climates. This means less additives, less sprays and more fantastic wine!
