Star Cellar Door
Australia’s best young red wine, the Jimmy Watson-winning 2019 Fallen Giants Shiraz on tasting? Yes please! Sitting on the deck at Fallen Giants is a must-do when visiting the Grampians wine region. The white, Mediterranean-style cellar door of this award-winning boutique winery is nestled between its organic vineyard and old gum trees. Only a stone’s-throw from Halls Gap, Fallen Giants boasts breath-taking views of Geriwerd (Grampians National Park), from where it takes its name. The high-quality wines available on tasting (including the 2021 Jimmy Watson winner) all hail from the family-owned organic vineyard. A local produce platter, available from the cellar door, pairs beautifully with the crisp estate grown riesling. If red meat with your shiraz is more your style, you can BYO supplies for the BBQ on the estate. Picnic blankets are also available to enjoy other areas of the property.
