Grampians Estate has been successful in gaining funding in round two of the state government’s Wine Growth Fund.
The funding will support an expansion and renovation project at our Great Western Cellar Door which will see 100sqm of space added to the winery including 75sqm indoors and 25sqm outdoors.
The renovated space will include a new kitchen and room for small functions as well as glass windows that overlook the vines.
With visitation to Grampians Estate more than doubling in the past nine years, the new space will allow us to offer an expanded food and wine experience to our customers and hire more staff.
Great Western is going through an exciting stage of growth and we see this project supporting the ongoing economic development of the region, through employment and increased tourism.
Grampians Estate has some of the oldest vines in the state, with its first plantings made in 1883.
Our wines continue to bring home awards year-on-year, with Grampians Estate named ‘Champion Small Winery of Show’ at the 2017 Australian Small Winemakers Show.
The renovations are expected to be finished by Autumn 2019, which will be celebrated with the release of an 1883 shiraz.
