Grampians wine region

Swipe your finger along the dusty barrels in the hand-dug 1860s cellars at Best's Great Western and get a feel for the rich history of Victoria's Grampians wine region, home to some of the world's oldest vines.

Natural beauty and favourable elements
Tour the visually spectacular southern extremity of the Great Dividing Range and experience the elements that ensure the continued distinguished wine production of this region, stretching back to the 1860s.

Make note of the old soil, good terroir, the hot days and cold nights with minimal rainfall, and the old vines that all combine to make the well-known table wines. Regional standouts are shiraz and riesling, with chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot meuniere, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon adding to the richness and diversity. Look out for the exceptional sparkling wines on offer too.

History underground and above
Get more history on a tour of the historic drives that stretch for kilometres beneath Seppelt Great Western and where sparkling wines mature. Above ground you can sample the iconic vineyard's renowned wines and look out at the gnarled old vines with illustrious histories.

A crop of young winemakers are updating the history books and ensuring the region remains on the map. Try wines from The Story and Jamsheed, as well as the result of new blood at Best's, Seppelt and Crawford River.
