Best’s Wines Great Western

Wineries

Founded in 1866 in the Great Western wine region of Victoria, Best’s Great Western is one of Australia’s oldest continually family-owned and operated wineries. Best’s is known to have some of the oldest vines in Australia and produces extraordinary wines with great longevity.

Throughout the history of the winery, there have only been 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.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, bookings are essential for visits and tastings please book your visit through their website.
