Best's Great Western was founded in 1866, they are one of Australia's oldest family owned wineries with some of the oldest vines in the country. The fifth generation of their family now runs the winery.

They strive to make elegant and well balanced wines with great longevity. They hope you will enjoy their wines and discover some Best Kept Secrets for yourself.

"A visit to Best's Great Western is located in the township of Great Western. It is an absolute must for any wine fancier. Few wineries are as historic or as atmospheric.

The rustic timber winery building and underground cellar breathe history, and alongside is one of the country's most unusual blocks of vines, a Nursery Block planted in the 1860s which is a sort of living museum of ancient vines, some of them of obscure and mysterious origin.

The wines here are excellent, with outstanding Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, savoury Dolcetto, and fresh Pinot Meunier among the reds, and top quality Riesling and Chardonnay. Occasional specials, available only from the Cellar Door, are an added incentive to visit." Review by Ralph Kyte-Powell.
