Guided Shiraz Tasting with Ben & Hamish Thomson

Food and Wine

10 Sep 2022 Once Only Event

To celebrate the inaugural Grampians Wine Festival, join Hamish and Ben Thomson on Saturday 10th September for a special guided shiraz tasting experience at Best’s Wines Cellar Door.

The Thomson boys will present all our 2019 vintages from our cornerstone wine Bin No. 1 Shiraz through to our flagship wine The Thomson Family Shiraz plus a bonus mystery wine. There will be an opportunity to ask them some questions and a guided tour. A small palate cleansing cheese plate will also be included. Strictly limited to 20 guests.

Built in 1866, the Cellar Door is the heart of Best’s Wines’ operation. Situated in the picturesque Grampians in the undulating central Victorian countryside between Stawell and Ararat, Best’s Wines lies in the historically rich wine-growing region of Great Western. The old red gum slab tasting room is housed in the original stables and showcases old winery equipment, maps of the area, as well as Henry Best’s original journal dating from 1866.
