Tahbilk

Victoria | Nagambie Lakes

James' Review

A winery steeped in tradition (with National Trust classification) and which should be visited at least once by every wine-conscious Australian. It makes wines - particularly red wines - utterly in keeping with that tradition. The essence of that heritage comes in the form of their tiny quantities of Shiraz made from vines planted in 1860. A founding member of Australia's First Families of Wine. Wine Companion 2016 Winery of the Year. Exports to all major markets.

About

Established in 1860, Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful and historic wineries, located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central Victoria and one of the nation's premium viticultural areas. The vineyard comprises 200 hectares of vines including whites of marsanne, viognier and roussanne - the reds - shiraz, grenache and mourvedre as well as the traditional varieties. Tahbilk is further blessed with an abundance of 'old vine' plantings including shiraz from 1860, cabernet back to 1949 and marsanne from 1927.

Then take a journey back through time as you wander around the historic cellar door and head downstairs to the original underground cellars which are classified by the National Trust and are still in use.

Food

Information

In response to a growing demand for the food and wine experience, the Tahbilk Café was opened in 2005, built on the backwaters of the Tahbilk billabongs.
Set in a beautifully tranquil location the Café provides visitors with an authentic experience, relaxed and in keeping with the Purbrick family’s food and wine ethos.
Most visitors like to sit outside on the sweeping deck and listen to the birds as they enjoy their favourite wines - many exclusive to the Cellar Door and Cafe.
