Mount Ophir Estate

168 Stillards Lane Rutherglen 3685

Mount Ophir Estate, a unique and exclusive property in the rural district of Rutherglen in northern Victoria, Australia.

Mount Ophir Estate was established in 1891 by Eisemann and Gleeson as a farm and vineyard. The Burgoyne family the owners of Mount Ophir Estate from 1903 were prominent London wine merchants, who developed the property further by constructing a French provincial tower (a nod to their heritage) and a winemaking facility. At this time, the building was the largest state-of-the-art wine producing complex in the Southern Hemisphere. Their ultimate vision was to be the wine centre of Australia.

The wine bore the royal seal of England and was transported via rail to port and then via steamships to ‘the mother country’ to satisfy the palate of British aristocracy. The winery closed in 1955, and the 740-acre estate reduced to 140 acres.

Eliza, Angela, Nick Brown and families, purchased the property in May 2016 and have taken Mount Ophir Estate on with a passion not seen since its heady days under the Burgoyne family.
