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.

Muscat Mile

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.

Nature Experiences

While recent history has seen farmers and winemakers use the fertile lands of Rutherglen to their advantage, the story is much longer than that. Like most rivers, the Murray River is always moving, always changing and over time altered its course to carve out Lake Moodemere.
