TAHBILK CELLAR DOOR & WINE TASTING: The Cellar Door tasting is a MUST if visiting the winery. Held in the original winery you will be well looked after by our lovely staff as you try a range of different Tahbilk wines on offer. An amazing experience which takes you back in time, unchanged since 1860. UNDERGROUND CELLARS: In Cellar Door, follow the stairs down into the original underground cellars built in 1862. Take a moment to breath in the sights and smells of the red wine cellar before moving to what we call the new cellar which was built by James Escott Purbrick (third cousin to Reginald Purbrick) in 1875 in only 6 weeks. ECO TRAILS: The complex web of billabongs became 8kms of backwaters and creeks. These deep wetlands are the site now of the Tahbilk Eco Trails. Start your walk by heading across the historic Long Bridge. The Long Bridge was built from timber hewn on the Estate to replace a ford on the site soon after the Goulburn Weir was completed in 1889. Following the floods of 1954, the bridge was extensively repaired, reducing from double to single lane. In 1996 it was completely rebuilt, again with timber cut and milled on the property. Visitors can stroll along a range of walking paths and boardwalks along a 4km circuit. ECO CRUISE: Gently glide along the Tahbilk billabongs and enjoy a 30 minute cruise in the undercover comfort of our eco friendly electric powered boats.

A very nice place to visit. Friendly staff, nice wines to try and making a purchase is not going to break the bank. A lot of history to look at makes for an afternoon out.

This cellar has real character and depth of experience. The tasting staff were on their game and the self tour of the cellar area while small had character and was memorable.

38 of us lunched here on Sunday. I really enjoyed our 3 part afternoon beginning with our delicious lunch, then on to an eco tour of the beautiful billabong, and finally a tour of the winery itself. A really enjoyable way to wile away a few hours in a stunning location.

Great Winery, enjoyed the history, atmosphere and wine. The lovely lady who talked us through the tasting, was extremely knowledgeable and a delight to chat with. Tahbilk wines are well made and delicious. I'm a big fan of the marsanne.

Worth an outing. You get a pleasant walk around the small lake, a boat ride if you wish, and the cafe is a great place to have lunch, or just a coffee.

We visited Tahbilk Winery as part of the Goulburn River Wineries cruise and were really impressed not only with the wines we tasted but with the very old buildings housing the winery. A really interesting visit. Perhaps the only drawback was the fairly steep hike up the river bank from our cruise ship. Strangely enough the walk back to the... More

This is a winery that has seen five generations of the one family and it is a very good winery to visit. Loads of history, plenty of old wines, great variety to taste and buy.

We had lunch with friends at the cafe over the Christmas period. Service was good, food was delicious, location on the balcony next to the river was very pretty and wine was enjoyable. I had the grilled haloumi vegetarian option and the dish had many different flavours and was very well presented. Thoroughly recommended!

This is the first winery i ever visited as a child, and every other winery I have visited since has disappointed me. The history, the old buildings, but most of all the smell of the ancient cellar below the tasting area are impossible to replicate. I went there to show my children.

Thank you for your review. You must come back for vintage when the wine is pumped into the open oak vats at the end of Tahbilk Cellar Door, the smell really is outstanding! I hope your children enjoyed their visit too, and maybe one day you'll bring the grandchildren! More
