The last days of vintage. 2018. A visit to Taminick Cellars. Photo-gallery.

I live nearby to the historic Booth’s Taminick Cellars winery. I have for over a decade. And yet I’d never made it all the way down the dirt road to visit before. Shame on me. I finally did one morning late last week. I took some pics.

The Taminick Cellars vineyard boasts, quite incredibly, about 24 acres of 99-year-old vines. A big birthday milestone awaits. There are relatively few *really* old grapevines in Victoria, for disease reasons, making this an incredibly special holding. To get to Taminick Cellars you have to veer off the Hume Highway at Glenrowan and then wind down a dirt road for a good few kilometres. When you get there, you find a unique site, tucked into the Warby Ranges, where birds and insects craze the air. If you’re an Australian/Victorian wine lover and you’ve not visited, then it’s a pilgrimage you need to add to your bucket list.
