The name Tahbilk is derived from the aboriginal word ‘Tabilk-tabilk’ - meaning ‘place of many wateringholes’ - as the vineyards are located in the unique Nagambie Lakes sub-region of central Victoria.

Furthermore the numerous lakes and lagoons linked by the Goulburn River create a moderate, cooler climate within Victoria.
