Moments | Tahbilk Winery

On our way to Bright we decided to stop by one of the oldest wineries in Australia - Tahbilk winery. 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. Tahbilk is now home to 5 generations of winemakers. 

It was a perfect stop over since we had been in the car for an hour and the kids were eager to stretch their legs. On the grounds there is also a wonderful cafe/resturant that has a beautiful scenery of the Gouldburn River. Here you can sample some of the vast array of different wines produced here and dine on fine food. It is a perfect place to bring children since there is plenty of space and the menu offers food options for kids as well. After we had topped up on food and drinks we visited the old wine cellar. The kids were amazed with all the old things they saw and our daughter couldn't get enough of the amazing seemingly never-ending dark cellar. Here you saw rows after rows of old wine barrels stacked with labels like Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marsanne and 'old block' Cabernet. 

We explored the cellars for a while, purchased some bottles and joined their wine club before we set off on our road trip towards Bright

If you are in the area and would like to visit, visit their website for directions and more information.
