Discover a special collection of aged wines


Calling all lovers of aged wines. 

All Saints Estate in north-east Victoria is set to offer some of its most precious back vintages from the Family Cellar this June, with its inaugural Museum Release. 

Registrations to purchase the Museum Release are now open on allsaintswine.com.au/museum.

The first edition of the Museum Release features 25 back vintages which can either be purchased individually or as part of a curated pack. 

Selected by winemaker Nick Brown, the wines have been selected based on their rarity and point of maturity. 

“Rutherglen is arguably Australia’s most historic wine region" Brown says. "Our family cellar reflects this history with old-vine wines cared for over the last three decades.

“Optimal storage conditions have allowed the wines to be perfectly aged, and wine enthusiasts will be able to enjoy these treasured vintages at their peak, without needing to cellar themselves. 

"We look forward to sharing this collection with those who are as passionate about wine as we are.”


The selection includes nine vintages of the Family Cellar (black label) range, including the 2004 All Saints Estate Family Cellar Shiraz and the 2007 All Saints Estate Family Cellar Marsanne; limited releases of Alias II (an unusual shiraz muscadelle blend) and Pierre, a Bordeaux-inspired blend named after the Brown’s late father, Peter. 

The curated packs (two, four or six bottles) showcase either variety or vintage; with Nick Brown selecting 2008 and 2013 as the best vintages from this collection.

The Family Cellar was launched by the Browns in 2003 to build a library for the next generation of wine connoisseurs. The wines have been aged in an architecturally designed and self-cooling underground cellar.
