The largest grapevine in Australia just keeps on giving at Chiltern. Planted in 1867, the vine has never been watered or fertilised but bears fruit each February or March. Clare Reeves, who operates the The Vine Chiltern eatery in the historic Star Hotel building, said natural underground springs topped up the old vine. Reeves said it had produced a decent crop of table grapes during the past few weeks.
