WHY IS IT SIGNIFICANT?

All Saints Winery is historically significant for its clear association with the development of vineyards and wineries in Victoria. It is one of Victoria's oldest wineries and is indicative of the establishment and expansion of the industry in Victoria. This association is evident in the physical fabric of the place - including the distinctive cellar building, array of early ancillary buildings with specific functions and early wine production facilities. [Criterion A]
All Saints Winery is architecturally significant as a fine example of a winery complex. The substantial above-ground cellar is distinctive in design and presents an unusual monumental quality with prominent square tower, castellated detailing and expansive brick walls. The cellar is located at the centre of a largely intact winery complex which includes buildings, processing facilities and equipment (including the grape press and large timber maturation barrels) which date from the early decades of the winery's establishment.
