Scion Vineyard & Winery is located in the heart of the Rutherglen wine region, North East Victoria. Discover their boutique Cellar Door - named Rutherglen's Best Small Cellar Door by Gourmet Traveller Wine in 2015 - located two kilometres south of Main Street.

Scion offers a creative narrative within the classic Rutherglen region, through aromatic, expressive wine styles that intrigue and excite. Enjoy a personalised wine experience with their passionate team, tasting a handcrafted range of contemporary wines that express a connection to place and a love of good food. All are welcome at Scion's Cellar Door: wine enthusiasts, the wine curious, families and cyclists alike.

French-style Picnic Hampers are available by pre-order to enjoy in Scion's relaxed environment, Thursday to Sunday. Phone bookings required with 24 hours' notice.

Scion was established in 2002 on a small hill just south of the Rutherglen township. The site was chosen for its unique combination of soils, northern aspect and gentle slope. After planting eight acres of vines, a Cellar Door was built taking advantage of views across beautiful Australian countryside.

Wines are made on-site by Rowly Milhinch, a great-great-great grandson of George Francis Morris, the founding father of Morris Wines (est. 1859). The historic Rutherglen wine region was a natural choice in which to establish Scion.

With an emphasis on quality, the vineyard is managed and harvested by hand. This artisan approach continues through to the winery to create a focused range of white, red and after-dinner wines.
