A Priceless Inheritance.
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. The property comprises some 1,214 hectares of rich river flats with a frontage of 11 kms to the Goulburn River and 8 kms of permanent backwaters and creeks. Purchased by the Purbrick family in 1925, Tahbilk is home to 5 generations.
The name Tahbilk originates from our location, which the local aboriginal people first referred to as "tabilk-tabilk", meaning "place of many waterholes". Originally spelled Tabilk, the 'h' was added later.
Tahbilk is home to some 200 hectares of vineyards specialising in grape varitals from the Rhone including Marsanne, Viognier and Rousanne. Also producing Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Savignon Blanc, Verdehlo, Grenache adn Mourvedre grapes.

Tahbilk has a long history of producing fine wines with the help of rich ferric-oxide/sandy loam soils and temperate climate. With over 150 years of winemaking experience you are sure to find some absolute gems in the Tahbilk repertoire. Whether it be ‘1860 Vines’, ‘Eric Stevens Purbrick’ or the (far from) standard Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, there is a history and character with both varietals that goes back generations.
