Fallen Giants vineyard was planted on the steep Eastern slopes of the Grampians in 1969, and has long since been a respected grower for many of the country's great wineries. With superb views of the Grampians, this winery in the heart of Halls Gap is known for its estate grown Shiraz, Cabernet and Riesling - definitely worth a sample.
If Shiraz is your thing then Clayfield Wines is a must. The grape is 100% estate grown and all wine is produced on site. Visit this stand to discover the world class Clayfield style, putting the best of the region’s unmistakable flavour, elegance and balanced structure front-and -centre.
Be sure to visit Pomonal Estate, a Winery, Microbrewery and Cider House located in the picturesque town of Pomonal. Located only 10 minutes from Halls Gap, the views of the Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park’s mountains are pretty hard to beat, as are the lunch menu items featuring wonderful local produce. Open Wednesday – Sunday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and serving lunch from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Another must-visit stall at Grampians Grape Escape is Mount Langi Ghiran. Frequently dubbed one of Australia’s most picturesque wineries, this Mount Langi Ghiran specialises in the Grampians region’s signature varietal - Shiraz.
A visit to the Grampians is not complete without a trip to the region’s original winemaking pioneers at Seppelt Great Western and festival-goers will have the opportunity to sample this historic cellar door’s produce across the two days.
Despite the name, it’s not just about the wine at Grampians Grape Escape! Fans of the amber nectar can stop by the stands of Stawell microbrewery Grampians Ale Works alongside Halls Gap’s own Paper Scissors Rock Brew co to sip and sample fresh, locally made beers.
