Graziers Sarah and Tom Guthrie began their diversification into wine in 1989, but their core business continues to be fat lamb and wool production. They have acquired the Garden Gully winery at Great Western, giving them a cellar door and a vineyard with 140+-year-old shiraz and 100+-year-old riesling. Grampians Estate followed its success of being Champion Small Winery of Show at the Australian Small Winemakers Show for the second year running in '18 by winning the Premier's Trophy for Champion Wine of Victoria in '19. These successes led to a major expansion of the cellar door. Exports to China.
Grampians Estate has quickly established an iconic reputation for its cool-climate peppery Shiraz. In particular the Streeton Reserve Shiraz label is very successful. These wines rank amoung the best of the festured wines made within the famous Grampians wine region by Mt Langi Ghiran, Bests, Seppelts and other leading wineries.
With vineyards located at the foothills of Mt William in Mafeking and Great Western, Grampians Estate has fast become one of the region‘s leading boutique wineries with an impressive list of awards.
Tom and Sarah Guthrie, with children Pollyanna and Ford, have nurtured their Shiraz, Chardonnay and Riesling vines with the goal to produce the best premium wines from their onsite winery. The classic Australian painting "Land of the Golden Fleece" by Sir Arthur Streeton features on many labels. The scene incorporates the idyllic location of the current day vineyard and home of Grampians Estate.
