Rutherglen wine region

Spend a few days in and around Rutherglen, home to over twenty wineries, ranging from household names to boutique operations. Get acquainted with the signature wines on offer from muscats, tokays and the rich reds – shiraz, durif and cabernet. Meet the fourth and fifth generation winemakers who draw on the family traditions while harnessing modern techniques to keep Rutherglen on the map.

A taste of the country
Along with the signature wines, lesser known varieties are grown here. The white Rhone varietals of marsanne, roussanne and viognier are achieving good results, while the tempranillo, sangiovese and zinfandel varietals round out the red wines.

With so much on offer, take time to meander between vineyards comparing styles and vintages, and enjoying matching the wines with the exemplary cuisine of the local vineyard restaurants and in Rutherglen village.

Ride on
Join the Pedal to Produce Cycle Trail to sample the very best wines, fruit and produce at local wineries, orchards and cafes. Alternatively, hit the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail and discover the grandeur of the mighty Murray River while stopping at cellar doors to enjoy local varietals and country hospitality along the way.
