To ensure that we are on your festive table please place your orders before Friday 13 December. No orders will leave the winery between Friday 13 December - Monday 6 January due to courier holiday closures.

We hope you enjoy our latest Best Kept Secrets eNewsletter and good luck for the 12 Days of Christmas competition!

The Team at Best's Great Western

2011 Sparkling Shiraz here for Christmas

Sparkling Shiraz has become an Australian Christmas favourite sitting on the lunch table alongside the turkey. Due to the popularity of our Sparkling Shiraz, we are pre-releasing the 2011 before its official release in early December.

We encourage you to order your wine now, however it will not leave the winery until early next month after it is officially released. A Best's representative will be in contact with you to let you know when your order leaves the winery.

Don’t want to order online? Call our cellar door team and order over the phone on 03 5356 2250.

New Great Western Vintages a Huge Success

The releases of our 2013 Riesling, 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and highly anticipated 2012 Bin 1 Shiraz in September have all been extremely well received. Not only have we received fantastic feedback from people who have enjoyed them so far, but also had very positive reviews from wine writers. To top off a great start to these new vintages Best's have had incredible success at a number of wine shows.   

The 2012 Bin 1 Shiraz has been awarded two trophies, three gold medals, two silver, and two bronze. The 2013 Riesling has picked up two trophies, a gold, silver and four bronze medals, and the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon scored itself a gold medal at this year's Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. A great result for some great wines!


Mixed Vintages of Old Clone Pinot Noir

One of our ‘best kept secrets’ is that at Best’s Great Western, we have some of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in the world. Best’s Old Clone Pinot Noir was first picked and labelled as Old Clone by former winemaker Adam Wadewitz in 2006. Its history dates well before that which goes back to the old vineyard ‘Millers Burgundy’, first planted at Great Western in 1868. It was so-named because the leaves have a faint, light grey appearance, as if dusted with millers flour.

Listen to what our winemaker Justin has to say about the old Pinot Noir vines in this short video.


Available for a limited time are three great mixed-vintage Old Clone Pinot Noir packs, the perfect accompaniment with your ham or turkey. Get your hands on three consecutive vintages of Old Clone Pinot Noir, including the 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages, in one convenient pack shipped straight to your door.
