The story of Tahbilk begins with the land and the river. Situated within the traditional lands of the Taungurung people, tabilk-tabilk means 'place of many waterholes', a name that aptly describes the abundance of the landscape. This is the place we call home. The intricate internal billabong systems create a unique meso-climate and provides a home for an array of plant and animal life, supporting near-perfect growing conditions in our vineyards. Our unique environment is at the heart of our ability to craft wines of exceptional quality, which truly represent the earth in which they grow.
Established in 1860 Tahbilk is one of Australia's most beautiful and historic family owned wineries. Located in the Nagambie Lakes region of central Victoria (120kms north of Melbourne), one of the nation's premium viticultural areas. The property comprises some 1,214 hectares of rich river flats with a frontage of 11 kms to the Goulburn River and 8 kms of permanent backwaters and creeks. Purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk is home to 5 generations.
When Eric Purbrick sent his first newsletter to the dedicated Tahbilk drinker in 1971, never in his wildest dreams did he imagine his legacy would continue on into the 21st century. We love our Wine Club Members and as far as we're concerned they're part of the family. Our wineclub is free to join and members attain a 10% discount off Tahbilk wines and access to exclusive Wine Club ranges plus new deals every month.
Step into a hidden oasis in Victoria where the natural landscape blends to complement a rich winemaking heritage. An easy day trip from Melbourne (90 minutes), Shepparton (40 minutes), Bendigo (60 minutes) - the list goes on! Established in 1860 and purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk captures the hearts and minds of visitors.
If you are driving don't forget we're not the only great winery in the area. There is also Mitchelton and our Strathbogie ranges friends, Fowles plus we're also a stone's throw away from Heathcote or Rutherglen. Information on Nagambie can be found at www.gonagambie.com.au.
