What You Can Do

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.

It’s time to venture to the dark side, and discover Muscat of Rutherglen; a secret drink that sits somewhere between a wine and spirit. There is nothing quite like it anywhere in the world – rich, complex, mysterious and full of flavour.
