The original 1860 winery and cellar door captures visitors' hearts and minds with its beautiful historic appearance that will open your imagination. Step into a hidden oasis in Victoria, where the natural landscape blends to complement a rich winemaking heritage.
We offer a range of wine tasting experiences designed to educate you about Tahbilk’s winemaking heritage, iconic wines or taste something special in heritage surrounds.
Our stand-up wine tasting is an informal way to learn about our wines, you can expect to be greeted and served by our knowledgeable cellar door team in a bar like setting. This experience is unchanged since Eric Purbrick’s days behind the cellar door bar and offers visitors a chance to pick and choose wines from a curated wine tasting list.
Our seated wine tasting must be booked in advance of your arrival. Visitors who book online can expect to be seated on the veranda facing the Goulburn River or cosied up inside at the southern end of the cellar door clustered around John Purbrick’s tasting bar.
Visitors to the seated experience are served by the same person who will curate a wine tasting to fit your needs at the table.
Tahbilk also offers a private tasting in the Len Evans Museum for a minimum of 10 people. Separate to the Tahbilk Cellar Door the museum allows visitors to this experience to soak in the rich story and history of Tahbilk.
