Best’s Great Western


Best’s has been making wines uninterrupted since 1866, striving to craft expressive, authentic regional wines in Victoria’s Great Western region. Best’s has been owned by two families since 1866 – the Best family, who founded the winery; and today, the Thomson family, having purchased the property after Henry Best’s death in 1920. Best’s is now run by Viv Thomson’s son, Ben Thomson, the fifth generation of the Thomson family to manage the winery.

Best’s old vineyards, planted in the 1860s, are amoung the oldest and rarest pre-phylloxera plantings in the world. The invaluable Best’s Nursery Block contains almost 40 varieties (some unidentified to this day).

As one of Australia’s oldest and continuously family owned and operated wineries, Best’s crafts extraordinary and iconic wines of elegance and longevity. The flagship wine, Best’s Thomson Family Shiraz, has an “Outstanding” designation from the revered Langton’s auction house and Best’s Bin No. o Shiraz is rated as “Distinguished”.

FireWorks is pleased to add Best’s to our portfolio and can’t wait to see what outcomes we can achieve!
