Established in the 1850s, this is one of Australia's heavyweight producers of fortified wines. Stephen Chambers's muscats are legendary, with blending stocks that go back more than a century. Stephen runs a very relaxed winery, which is genuinely rustic, being just a few corrugated iron sheds in an off-the-beaten-track road. The cellar door is renowned for offering great value and plenty of tastings; you can take home reasonably priced red and white wine, sherriy, port,
muscat, and tokay—from the cleanskin variety (no-label stock) to big two-liter flagons. There's no restaurant, just a cellar door, which also sells homemade jams and condiments.
