Best’s Wines

Victoria | Great Western

Our Review

Best’s winery and vineyards date back to 1866. One of the vines planted in the Nursery Block has defied identification and is thought to exist nowhere else in the world. The Thomson family has owned the property since 1920. Best’s consistently produces elegant, supple wines; the Bin No. 0 is a classic, the Thomson Family Shiraz is magnificent. Very occasionally a unique pinot meunier (with 15% pinot noir) is made solely from 1868 plantings of those 2 varieties. Best's were awarded Wine of the Year in '17 and '23, and Best Value Winery '21. -JAMES HALLIDAY
