Wineries of the Grampians
  The Grampians produces some of the country's finest Shiraz and Riesling, the flagships of the region. Steeped in history, Great Western also enjoys the reputation of being the home of Australian sparkling wine.    
    Best's Wines "Concongella"    
Established in 1866, Best's Winery is among Australia's oldest small family wineries.
With its original 1860s vineyard block full of a staggering number of obscure ancient vines, and with its wonderful musty old underground cellars, Bestís is one of Victoriaís must-visit places. The Thomson family are fully aware of their heritage and keep the traditions of this place very much alive. Not surprisingly (given it is a regional specialty), Shiraz is the hallmark wine at Bestís. Located at Concongella Vineyard, Great Western, 1km off Western Highway (Highway 8) Stawell side of Great Western.
