Accolades for Grampians wineries

Several Grampians wineries feature in Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine’s Australia’s Best Cellar Door Awards.

The magazine’s annual May-June issue showcases the ‘best’ cellar doors across the country, as judged by the magazine’s ‘expert writers’.

Mt Langi Ghiran, near Ararat, won the best large cellar door accolade for the Grampians-
Henty wine region. 

Halls Gap’s Fallen Giants winery triumphed in the best small cellar door section, while Pomonal Estate was elected the cellar door with the best food.

Best’s Great Western won accolades for the best additional cellar door experience, thanks to its underground cellar and helicopter tour options.

According to the magazine’s writers, family-owned Mountainside Wines has the Grampians-Henty’s best accommodation – The Blue House – with the best tasting experience at Bochara Wines, west of Hamilton.

The region’s top award, the ‘star cellar door’ went to Pierrepoint Wines, between Hamilton and Tarrington.

Judged were impressed with the ‘local gem’, owned and operated by the Lacey family since 2000.
