Wineries

A James Halliday Five Red Star winery, Grampians Estate has collected some 53 trophies for its wines.

The cellar door offers wine tastings, cheese platters, muffins and espresso coffee in a warm and friendly environment. Experienced staff will ensure your visit is a rewarding one.

Grampians Estate owns two vineyards. The Garden Gully Vineyard at Great Western was established in the late 1870s, with the vineyard’s shiraz and riesling vines being amongst the oldest in Victoria.

The Mafeking vineyard to the south of Moyston produces classic cool climate peppery spicy shiraz, best exemplified in the multi awarded Streeton Reserve Shiraz label.

Ralph Kyte-Powell recalls how the Salinger family operated its Hockheim winery on the Great Western site for about 75 years, closing in 1945. A brick-topped underground tank out the front is the only remnant of those days. Now Grampians Estate occupies the site. A friendly, relaxed cellar door just off the main road, it is a great place to taste some of Great Western’s best wines, especially outstanding Shiraz, in either still table wine form, or the sparkling type that is a regional speciality.
