two owners, the Best family who founded the winery, and the Thomson Family with a fifth-generation Thomson is now running the winery.

The Stables Cellar Door is a great place to taste the wines before experiencing the original underground cellar on their self-guided tour.

Best's Great Western is located in the township of Great Western and it is an absolute must for any wine fancier. Few wineries are as historic or as atmospheric.

The wines 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.

With restrictions easing for a COVIDsafe Summer, Best's Wines can now accommodate up to 50 guests in their Cellar Door across two separate areas, bookings via their website are preferred for visits and tastings, if you do not have a booking you may be required to wait.
