Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

For the Chaffey Bros, great wine is all about understanding the land, bonding with the elements and becoming a part of the environment which makes the vintage

Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela are the latest generation of the Chaffey family to ply their vinous trade in Australia. The original Chaffey Brothers were Canadian hydro engineers, true iconoclasts within their field of endeavour. They arrived in Australia 1886 and proceeded, along with a number of their decendants, to make an indelible mark on the Australian wine landscape. Chaffey Bros handmade minimal intervention wines come from individual parcels of low yielding vineyards, spread throughout the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Drawing on true old vines and complex soils, the modern day Chaffeys see themselves as parfumiers discovering delicate aromatics, part historians, preserving the purity of pristine fruit, part mad scientists, revelling in the lost art of small batch blending. Old vines of Eden Valley Riesling and Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz are the building blocks, the timeless pillars of great great wines.
