Victoria | Nagambie Lakes

Our Review

In 2020, Tahbilk celebrated its 160th birthday. For 5 generations, the Purbrick family have tended vines and protected the delicate watering holes and landscape of their property outside Nagambie. The winery should be visited at least once by every wine-conscious Australian. It produces marsanne and a range of reds made very much as they were by the late, great Eric Purbrick. The family has moved fast in securing a more sustainable future, re-establishing natural wetlands, revegetating 160ha of land with indigenous trees and plants, achieving carboNZero certification in ’16 and beginning the journey in ’16 to convert its vineyards to accredited organic. In ’22, Alister Purbrick stepped down as CEO but will continue to be involved on industry boards. Tahbilk is a founding member of Australia’s First Families of Wine and was the Companion’s Winery of the Year in ’16.


Established in 1860, Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful and historic wineries, located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central Victoria and one of the nation's premium viticultural areas. The vineyard comprises 200 hectares of vines including whites of marsanne, viognier and roussanne - the reds - shiraz, grenache and mourvedre as well as the traditional varieties. Tahbilk is further blessed with an abundance of 'old vine' plantings including shiraz from 1860, cabernet back to 1949 and marsanne from 1927.


Marsanne, '1927 Vines' marsanne, viognier, roussanne-marsanne-viognier, shiraz, '1860 Vines' shiraz, 'Eric Stevens Purbrick' shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, 'Eric Stevens Purbrick' cabernet sauvignon, 'Old Vines' cabernet-shiraz, grenache-shiraz-mourvedre.

Cellar Door


The Cellar Door tasting is a MUST if visiting the winery! Held in the original winery you will be well looked after by our lovely staff as you try a diverse range of wines - many only available at the Winery.
Then take a journey back through time as you wander around the historic cellar door and head downstairs to the original underground cellars which are classified by the National Trust and are still in use.

In response to a growing demand for the food and wine experience, the Tahbilk Café was opened in 2005, built on the backwaters of the Tahbilk billabongs.
Set in a beautifully tranquil location the Café provides visitors with an authentic experience, relaxed and in keeping with the Purbrick family’s food and wine ethos.
Most visitors like to sit outside on the sweeping deck and listen to the birds as they enjoy their favourite wines - many exclusive to the Cellar Door and Cafe.
