Riversands Vineyards

Published 01 May 2024

Riversands Vineyards is Queensland’s western most winery located on the banks of the Balonne River in St George, south-west Qld, producing 20 ha of wine and table grapes.
Riversands is a Blacket family venture purchased in 1996. Owner David Blacket said “St George is an ideal district in which to grow grapes due to the water security offered by the Beardmore Dam and deep sandy loam soils.”
“Wine varieties include sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, shiraz, merlot, ruby cabernet, white muscat, black muscat & emerging varieties such as vermentino & saperavi. While we are best known for our fortified wines including our famous Golden Liqueur Muscat and St George Port, we also make a popular range of red and white table and sparkling wines.”
“We also produce premium table grapes for supermarkets in the eastern states. Our table grape varieties include Menindee Seedless, Midnight Beauty and most recently Ruby Rush.”
