The place is known as Tabilk-tabilk, ‘place of many waterholes’ in the language of the Taungurung, the first people; a name which perfectly describes the landscape. Located in one of the nation's premium viticultural areas, the property comprises some 1,214 hectares of rich river flats with a frontage of 11kms to the Goulburn River and 8kms of permanent backwaters and creeks. Tahbilk has a long history of producing fine wines with the help of rich ferric-oxide/sandy loam soils and temperate climate. With over 160 years of winemaking experience. Tahbilk's Wetlands & Wildlife Reserve is a hidden oasis on the property, where the natural landscape blends to complement a rich winemaking heritage.
