Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia

International Shiraz Day

27 July marks International Shiraz Day, and we join the celebration of one of Australia's most beloved and well-established grape varieties. 

You may think the Hunter Valley is all about Semillon, but it also holds a prominent position in the world of Shiraz, boasting some of the oldest rooted vines on the entire planet, some of which trace back to the 19th Century. While our other Ultimate Wineries undoubtedly produce exceptional Shiraz, today we shine the spotlight on two of our Hunter Valley members who champion this grape variety through their outstanding experiences.

Tyrrell's Sacred Sites wines stand as a true testament to the exceptional quality and uniqueness of Shiraz from the Hunter Valley. Crafted exclusively from dry-grown vines that have thrived for over 100 years, these vines originate from the historic Busby Collection, planted in the Hunter Valley in 1832. These revered sacred sites have endured the test of time, producing Shiraz with distinct character and exceptional qualities. Among these exceptional wines is the highly acclaimed Old Patch Shiraz. The Sacred Sites Experience presents a rare opportunity to explore and taste the revered Shiraz collection, making it a truly unforgettable journey for wine enthusiasts seeking the finest and rarest in the wine world.
