Swipe your finger along the dusty barrels in the hand-dug 1860s cellars at Best's Great Western and you’ll 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 where distinguished wine production stretches back to the 1860s.

Take note of the old soil and good terroir of a region where hot days, cold nights, minimal rainfall and vintage vines combine to create well-known table wines. Shiraz and riesling are regional standouts, with chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot meuniere, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon adding to the region’s richness and diversity. Look out for exceptional sparkling wines, 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 over the gnarled old vines, considering their illustrious history.

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.
