Rutherglen Winery Tours & Region
The Rutherglen Wineries located in one of the four North East Victorian Wineries Regions is the unrivalled king of Australian fortified wines, but there is also a great variety of robust reds and crisp dry whites. Durif is the region's speciality red wine along with the rich reds – shiraz and cabernet.
A Brief History
Winemaking has been a family tradition in Rutherglen since the 1850s and today fourth, fifth and sixth generation winemakers produce outstanding, award-winning wines. Grand brick buildings in and around historic Rutherglen, and wineries such as All Saints Estate and Fairfield House speak of the prosperity of the late Victorian era and the glory days of the 19th century. The new, young winemakers respect the wonderful heritage of the region, and have added a new level of innovation, quality and excitement.
Vines came to Rutherglen along with the Gold Rush of the 1850s and today crisp whites, rich reds and world-famous fortified wines are produced with a unique regional character. A wide variety of grapes flourish in Rutherglen thanks to the cool nights, warm days and long, dry autumns that make for ideal viticultural conditions.
Grapes grown in this region include Durif, Muscat, Tempranillo, Marsanne, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Tokay (Muscadelle).
