Rutherglen - the name is synonymous with wines to fortify, invigorate, warm, enjoy and, best of all, to leave you with a memorable tasting experience. The region embraces 16 wineries, each with its own history and expertise and which, collectively, can provide you with a mixed case that will ensure lasting memories of your visit to this NSW-Victoria border wine wonderland.
The fine wine apart, there is a rich heritage of the art of viticulture locked into the Rutherglen area so allow yourself plenty of time to absorb it all. Savour the full flavour of the region - its wine, its history, its fine food and the joys and excitement of the Murray River.
The pinnacle of Rutherglen wine elegance is expressed by the ambience of the All Saints Estate which has developed from the original castle built in 1864. There is grandeur, too, in The House at Mt Prior where fine dining is part of the daily wine ritual.
And you can live and breathe regional wine history at Gehrig's Estate where they have been pressing grapes into wine continuously since 1858. Add the likes of such trademark names as Morris, Campbell, Buller and Pfeiffer and you begin to understand the significance of Rutherglen to the Australian wine industry.
