The Sacred Sites Experience is one of the most unique winery experiences available, allowing visitors to spend an afternoon with Fourth Generation, Bruce Tyrrell, or Fifth Generation, Chris Tyrrell. Over 3 hours you will enjoy a private and personalised tour of our Sacred Sites vineyards, located on the Ashmans property, followed by an in depth winery tour and barrel tasting. Finish the afternoon with a tutored tasting by Bruce or Chris Tyrrell of the Sacred Sites collection, accompanied by a charcuterie board with locally sourced fresh produce. This experience is the only time the Sacred Sites wine collection is available for tasting.
The Hunter Valley is home to some of the oldest vineyards in the world. Our Sacred Sites wines are made only from dry-grown vines that are more than 100 years old and on their own roots. The origins of most of these vines lie in the Busby Collection - cuttings brought to Australia from Europe by James Busby and planted in the Hunter Valley in 1832.
These sacred sites are some of the most distinguished pockets of vineyard land in Australia, having survived the test of time and consistently making exceptional wines that have their own distinct character and unique qualities. In 2004, Tyrrell's decided to bottle these wines on their own and today they're among the rarest in the wine world, often available only on allocation. Among these wines is our Old Patch Shiraz, which has been awarded a perfect 100-point score for the last four consecutive releases by influential wine journalist James Suckling.
Note: This experience is available Monday to Thursday, subject to availability. If a Tyrrell family member is unavailable to host a member of our winemaking team will host. This experience is not available in Dec/Jan/Feb due to vintage or on Sundays. Requires a minimum 2 people, maximum 6 people.
