All Saints Estate

A Castle in NE Victoria!

All Saints Estate is one of the most spectacular vineyard settings in Australia. The entrance is lined by 120 year old elm trees that change beautifully with the seasons. The stunning landscaped gardens are a huge attraction, with a rose garden, ponds and gently undulating amphitheatres, which host many wine and food festivals, concerts and wedding ceremonies throughout the year. All Saints Estate also houses the renowned restaurant ‘The Terrace’, a cooperage and one of the finest private tasting facilities in Australia. The ‘Family Cellar’ stores some of All Saints Estate’s oldest and rarest wines. A private tasting surrounded by the sleeping wines and the fragrant oak is truly an experience to remember.

All Saints Estate

All Saints Estate is one of Australia’s original wineries, established in 1864, by two enterprising Scots, George Sutherland Smith and John Banks. The castle was built in the 1880’s. By the turn of the century, All Saints Estate became the largest wine storage facility in the southern hemisphere, and is now an icon of Victoria’s history. The Great Hall, the main wine storage hall, is lined with huge, 100 year old oak casks, which are filled with rare Tokay and Muscats. Some of the fortifieds are up to 80 years old; these form the basis of future blends. The wines are amongst Australia’s and the world’s greatest, internationally extolled for their richness and ‘lusciousness’. All Saints Estate won the first gold medal for Australian wine in 1873 at the London International Exhibition.
