Tahbilk Winery dates all the way back to 1860 when its vines were originally planted. The Pubrick family purchased the estate in 1925 and began the legacy that it thrives on today. As the oldest family-owned winery in Victoria, Tahbilk has an incredibly rich history. Visiting this winery is like stepping into an oasis, where the stunning natural landscape complements the notorious winemaking heritage. Tahbilk holds a rich source of old and iconic single vineyard wines, including Victoria’s oldest shiraz, which was planted in 1860 and Australia’s oldest marsanne, planted in 1927.
At the forefront of the Purbrick family is sustainability. Tahbilk is a proudly accredited net carbon zero winery since 2014 and achieved naturally net carbon zero emissions in 2022.
Spanning over 220 hectares and producing more than thirty different varietals of wine every year, this winery specialises in creating rich red and white wines such as shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and marsanne.
Tahbilk is located in the Nagambie Lakes region and recognised as a sub region within central Victoria’s Goulburn Valley. The estate is nestled amongst the creeks of the Tahbilk wetlands, this hidden gem in the heart of Victoria. Tahbilk holds a variety of tours and experiences. For a deeper understanding of winemaking and history, a guided cellar door tour, including a tour of the underground cellar, is not to be missed. For the wine curious, you can create your own wine under the guidance of Tahbilk’s wine ambassador in a wine blending experience. Here you can learn more about how to taste wine, and combine different varieties to create your own personal blend to take home.
Guests can also enjoy the Wetlands View Restaurant, where the menu is crafted to pair with Tahbilk wines, creating a matched food and wine experience. The restaurant sources quality ingredients from local farmers and producers, so guests can enjoy a seasonal menu that highlights the best the region has to offer.
While only a ninety minute drive from Melbourne, Tahbilk awaits your arrival and will surely capture the hearts and minds of visitors.
⇐ 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
Rich and fruitful, this cabernet sauvignon was produced from a vintage that delivered deeply flavoured estate fruit and was then completed with Tahbilk’s traditional winemaking practices. Concentrated blackcurrant and dark plum fruits sit deliciously alongside mint, black olive and forest herb notes. This distinctively fresh grape wine sits beautifully at the back of the palate.
⇐ 2018 ‘Old Vines’ Cabernet Sauvignon
Characteristic of its aged vine sourcing, this 2018 cabernet sauvignon and shiraz is deeply packed with layers of dark and red berry fruits that are teased out with eucalypt, Chinese five-spice, and earth and dark chocolate notes. Herbal and cedar hints from time spent in American and French oak taking that complexity further, with savoury tannins on the finish giving structure to future cellaring.
⇐ 2023 Marsanne
This light white wine is accompanied by intense lemon citrus, spice and pear fruits and holds a zesty minerality. Its time in the cellar has undoubtedly brought out a toasty, honeysuckle and orange marmalade flavour to it. This Marsanne’s richness and complexity makes it an incredibly well-balanced white wine.
⇐ 2016 ‘1860 Vines’ Shiraz
This red from the 2016 vintage is fitted with an 1870’s label for its sophisticated release. With a fragrant note of bright red berries that mingles with spice, tea leaf and truffle aromas, this shiraz has a velvety palate of dark cherry and plum fruits that complement the warm earth and black olive characters with cedary notes from its time in the French oak barrel beautifully.
