Tahbilk vineyards are grouped along the banks of the Goulburn River and an anabranch of it that flows through the estate. The water has a tempering influence on the climate. The vines are grown at approximately 134 meters elevation of gently undulating and flat terrain. The soils are sandy loams with ferric oxide content, which varies from very fine sand near the anabranch to denser loams on the plains. The grapes come from the single vineyard Madills 1927 block, where the vines planted before 1986 are on ARG rootstocks. They are trained on a single wire trellis with a mixture of head and cordon training, with cane and spur pruning. Tahbilk's vines are sustainably cultivated; composting and mulching take place which improves soil health by promoting earthworm activity. Mulching also helps to control weeds and conserves water, reducing vine stress.

Established in 1860, Tahbilk is a historic family-owned winery, renowned for its rare aged Marsanne. The estate has the world’s largest single holding of the varietal and produces Marsanne from vines established in 1927, which are among the oldest in the world. Tahbilk is known as ‘tabilk tabilk’ in the language of the Daungwurrung clans, which translates as the ‘place of many waterholes’. It perfectly describes this premium viticultural landscape, which is located in the Nagambie Lakes region of Central Victoria. The estate comprises 1,214 hectares, including a seven-mile frontage to the Goulburn River. Environmental sustainability is paramount at Tahbilk and in 2013 they became carbon neutral. In 2016, Tahbilk was awarded 'Winery of the Year' by James Halliday.
