Briagolong Estate was planted in 1975 with pinot noir and chardonnay, followed several years later by a small planting of sauvignon blanc, which was, later still, removed. More recently a small experimental planting of shiraz , which is not very common in Gippsland, was added, and sauvignon blanc was re-introduced. There have been no releases of the latter two varieties to date.

In the late nineteenth century, Briagolong (aboriginal meaning - land of the rising sun) was the main vineyard area in Gippsland along with, surprisingly, Port Albert. Grape-growing lapsed in Gippsland in the early twentieth century, and Briagolong Estate was one of the earliest to show renewed interest in replanting, preceded only by Lulgra vineyard and Malcolm Winfield's experimental plantings, both of which were near Lakes Entrance, Since then there have been many plantings throughout Gippsland.
