Merry Christmas from the team at Best's Great Western

On behalf of the team at Best’s Great Western we’d like to wish you and your family a very safe and Merry Christmas. Thank you for your ongoing support over the year. 2012 has certainly been a memorable for the team at Best's. Here’s a festive message from our Managing Director Ben Thomson and the team.

Our Cellar Door is open throughout the holiday season with the exception of Christmas day, so if you’re near the Grampians be sure to call in and say hello – we’d love to show you around.

To help get into the festive spirit, we’ve put together some special offers including an exclusive Champagne offer that we’ve imported from France. Don’t delay in placing your order, the last day to order online is 3pm on Monday 17 December if you want to receive your wine in time for Christmas and New Year's celebrations. Please be aware that the courier company we use to send our wines out from Great Western is closed from 18th December till 8 January 2013 so any orders placed online during this time will not be despatched until the New Year.

Best wishes for a safe and happy festive season!


The team at Best's Great Western



Exclusive Champagne Offer

In 2006 the Thomson Family embarked on revitalising the sparkling wine production of years gone by in Great Western and in that year Edouard Huguenot worked at Best’s for vintage. Edouard leads the production of his family’s small estate in Celles-sur-Ource in L’Aube in southern Champagne, France. An exchange of ideas occurred, that lead to this partnership project becoming a reality and we’re thrilled to that the end product is finally here for you to enjoy.

Huguenot-Tassin are a small Champagne house that grows Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. They are renowned for producing exceptionally fine champagnes that embody the flavours and aromas of the region. They use traditional methods along with rigorous selection and attention to detail to highlight the delicate aromatic characters of their champagnes and maintain the finesse and elegance through the palate.

Best’s Great Western and Huguenot-Tassin are both ‘Estate’ producers of premium wine and the synergies between the two wine ‘houses’ are the platform of our collaboration resulting in our ‘Partnership’ Champagne. We are planning to import small quantities of this wine when it is available. Our supply may be limited at times, so to ensure you are not disappointed try some out for yourself and stock up this festive season.

We’re thrilled that the first shipment has arrived just in time for Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. This superb Champagne won’t last long.

Who put the red wine in the fridge?

Love a red with oomph but need something cold over summer?  Don’t mind a bit of fizz to add some festive cheer? Sparkling Shiraz is the way to go and our 2010 Sparkling Shiraz is just the right wine for the silly season.

Australia lays international claim to this unique wine style and it becomes all the more popular at Christmas time. The Great Western region is particularly renowned for Sparkling Shiraz, and has produced these special wines since the 1950s.

The 2010 Sparkling Shiraz pairs fantastically with Christmas fare (especially glazed ham and turkey, or even Christmas pudding). Click here for a great recipe by Chris Thomson.
