Established in 1860, Tahbilk Estate is located in the Nagambie Lakes Region of Victoria, about 100 kilometres north of Melbourne. Named from the Aboriginal for ‘place of many waterholes’, the property has an 11 kilometre frontage to the Goulburn River as well as many back waters and creeks. Producers of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussane as well as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and many more varieties, the tradition of winemaking has been going strong for 140 years. Harvest commences early March and goes for five-six weeks. Take a full day if you plan to visit, so you have time to explore the cellars, the museum and taste the fruits of the winemakers’ labours. There is also a new Tahbilk Wetlands Café located on a bend in the river, just where the wetlands walk commences. It is in fact a very apt place to walk off lunch!
