All Saints Estate Winery is a family owned wine company based in Wahgunyah, Victoria, Australia.[1] All Saints was built in 1864 by Scotsmen, George Sutherland Smith and John Banks. The castle building was based on one of the Queen's castles - The Castle of Mey. There are a number of historical buildings still standing today including the Chinese dormitory and the original bottling hall. The cellars, vats, dormitory and hall together with the castellated brick walls with a square corner tower are listed on the Register of the National Estate and the Victorian Heritage Register.[2]

The estate is today owned and run by siblings Eliza, Angela and Nicholas Brown. All Saints makes wine from a wide variety of grapes.[3]
