Best’s Great Western – Grampians – Australia
Best’s Great Western Review
Best’s Great Western Winery is one of Australia’s standout cellar doors. As one of Australia’s oldest wineries dating back to 1869 and with its first vines planted in 1867, it holds a tradition of great wine.
Their cellar door is one of the best. It’s a true step back in time and they let guests wonder through the old underground cellar to observe wine ageing in barrels, old wine caves and a perfectly set environment for cellaring. Wine bottles line the dimly lit rooms dating back decades. It’s wonderful and so much more authentic than any other cellar door I’ve been to. They are truly transparent in the whole wine making process and it’s a testament to their fantastic drops.
Best’s are known for their Bin 1 Shiraz and Chardonnay, yet their Riesling is one of the finest whites that Australia produces and at their cellar door you can try them all. They also offer cheese plates to compliment wine tastings with a range of hard and soft cheeses, spreads, fruit and crackers. It’s a perfect accompaniment to the wine offered for tasting.
Best’s is one Australia’s truly enjoyable and authentic cellar doors. Their wine is among the best and they do have small nibbles to enjoy. A trip to Best’s is like stepping back in time, so the next time you’re in the Grampians Region, be sure to stop by for a taste.
