Best's Wines Pty LtdIn 1866, Henry Best purchased 73 acres of land in Great Western and a property named Concongella. With the first vines planted in 1867, Best’s became a functioning winery by 1869. Meanwhile in 1893, Scottish born William Thomson settles in the Great Western districts and purchases a winery at Rhymney. By 1907, the Best’s trademark is registered, one of the first Australian wine companies to do so. In 1913, Henry Best aged 81 passed away and was laid to rest in the Great Western cemetery. In 1920, William Thomson and son Frederick Pinchon purchase the Best’s vineyards and winery for £10,000. In 1924, William Thomson died, passing the property to his son Frederick, who looked after it during The Great Depression of the 1930s. In 1908, Frederick (Eric) Hamill Thomson was born, forming the third generation. Then in 1938, a son Eric Vivian (Viv) Hamill Thomson was born, the fourth generation of the Thomson family. Frederick Pinchon Thomson died in Hong Kong in 1949. In 1961, Viv joined the family winery for his first vintage. A son, Benjamin Hamill Thomson arrived in 1964 as the start of the fifth generation of Thomson’s. A decade later in 1974, Viv oversaw the relocation of The Stables Cellar Door to allow for expansion and the cellar door as we now know it was erected. One year later in 1975, Viv appointed the first ‘external’ winemaker of Best’s Great Western, Trevor Mast, who would go on to be known as one of Australia’s greatest ever winemakers. Viv Thomson became President of Victorian Wine Association in 1982 and continued his role as an active National Wine Show Judge. In 1988, Simon Clayfield was appointed Best’s winemaker.

Whether you are just passing by for a quick tasting or want to spend the entire afternoon at Uleybury, your experience will be truly memorable. Uleybury lies North – East of Adelaide, South Australia, within the Mount Lofty Ranges . It is a picturesque area and to add to it’s poetic beauty it also fast becoming a new wine growing area. It was here where Tony Pipicella and family first planted vines in 1995. Then in July 2000 Uleybury Wines released their 1999 Hand Picked Basket Press Uley Chapel Shiraz, 1999 Hand Picked Basket Press Grenache Shiraz and 2000 Hand Picked Semillon. The response and success of the first three labels and now their continued vintage releases, along with several other new releases has proved that Uleybury “has the elements necessary to produce quality wine”, Winestate Magazine Nov/Dec 2000. At Uleybury every vine is hand pruned to control yield level to maximise quality. It is the continuing commitment to excellence in the vineyard that is the first step in making our award winning wines. Uleybury Wines are made to reflect soil, climate, variety and season, which is a rare occurrence in an industry which is becoming dominated by large corporations that produce wines according to specifications.
