Rutherglen Estates

Rutherglen Estates

In the mid 1800s the Rutherglen region was one of the largest winegrape growing areas in the southern hemisphere, exporting hundreds of thousands of litres of predominantly fortified wines to England and mainland Europe.

In the 1990s, when the interest and demand for Australian table wine was increasing tremendously, an extensive search by a group of passionate wine professionals, for an area suitable for producing an innovative range of regional wines, led back to Rutherglen, and in 1996 Rutherglen Estates was born.They proudly bear the name of one of the oldest and most recognised wine regions in Australia and their mission is to produce the most regionally typical premium wines from varieties most suited to the Rutherglen region.

Their wines are produced entirely from fruit grown on their own Rutherglen Vineyards and their professional winemaking and viticultural teams use a combination of traditional and cutting edge methods to deliver an innovative range of top quality premium wines.

Their winemakers use both traditional and modern winemaking techniques to produce a premium range of fresh fruit driven and varietally distinct wines with true regional character.
