Wine

Beginning over 160 years ago, the first farmers and winemakers began planting and experimenting with the land around Rutherglen. And while for many it was the promise of gold deep in the ground, the true wealth, it would be said was found in the top few inches of rich, loamy soil.

WINEMAKERS OF RUTHERGLEN

History

From Generation to Generation

It has been said that while Rutherglen was founded as a gold rush town, the real wealth existed in the few inches of topsoil, made rich and fertile by the Murray River and Lake Moodemere.

For more than 160 years winemakers and their families have called Rutherglen home and this special layer of dirt has produced vineyards and internationally acclaimed wines, from fortifieds and complex reds to new styles and varietals by a new and adventurous generation of makers and minds, staking their claim on the luscious soil.
