Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A wonderful birthday celebration for Angelo, who was in top form with the microphone. A well attended and catered event, and best of all we got to taste the Ballandean Estate range.

We attended Angelo’s 80th birthday party at Ballandean. A wonderful family business that has been established for years. Yes, there have been ups and downs but the family have triumphed. The party was lovely, food was great and of course, the wine was fabulous. Had a really lovely day. One criticism - they should have improved the weather!

My wife and family were greeted on entry with a glass each of sparkly, very nice. We had a great table with all the views and trimmings the smorgasbord was great and even better the wine was superb. Angelo’s cake cutting and speeches went very well. It was just a great day.

What a day with the master. Jokes and good fellowship with a glass, or 3 or 4, of great reds. A delightful wander/ meandering through the vines

What an enchanting place to visit and have a wine tasting with lunch. Graham our host was highly knowledgeable and provided outstanding service. We felt like royalty being waited on! The platters are delicious and have such a fabulous range to graze on. Even the bread and condiments the platter is served with are all quality ingredients. And best of all you can buy the wine, port and condiments to take away! The only downside was that I could have stayed many more hours. I highly recommend this very professional establishment and cannot wait to visit again!
