Borambola Wines is a winery with history. Located in the Gundagai wine-growing region, it dates back 25 years to 1995, and it wraps around a homestead that was built in the late 19th century. Its paddocks were also once home to 1947 Melbourne Cup winner Hiraji, who was raised there, trained there and also spent its post-race life there as well.
Given the latter fact, it's no wonder that one of Borambola's top drops is the Hiraji's Spell shiraz. Fruity in flavour, and with firm but light tannins, it's a flavoursome yet smooth wine. And, it's just one of the 100-percent estate-grown vinos on the company's list, with its range extending to chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, rosé, cabernet sauvignon and sparkling brut (and, to beer and cider as well).
Wine lovers can make the trip to Borambola's picturesque site for tastings by appointment, with sips on offer seven days a week — and for tours as well. The venue also hosts events, functions and weddings.
