At the time of Tahbilk’s very early beginnings in 1860, one of Tahbilk’s founding fathers, John Pinney Bear, placed an advertisement in leading newspapers across Australia asking for ‘One million strong vine cuttings’. 


His advertisement was reasonably successful with Tahbilk receiving around 600,000 cuttings and by the end of 1860, 26 hectares of vines planted.
