Campbells

Victoria | Rutherglen

James' Review

Campbells has a long and rich history, with five generations of the family making wine for over 150 years. There were difficult times: phylloxera's arrival in the Bobbie Burns Vineyard in 1898; the Depression of the 1930s; and premature deaths. But the Scottish blood of founder John Campbell has ensured that the business has not only survived, but quietly flourished. Indeed, there have been spectacular successes in unexpected quarters (white table wines, especially Riesling) and expected success with Muscat and Topaque. 99-point scores from Robert Parker and a 100-point score from The Wine Spectator put Campbells in a special position. The death of Colin Campbell has seen fifth generation Julie Campbell assume the role of head winemaker, fourth generation Malcolm continuing to be responsible for viticulture. The other four members of the fifth generation all working in the business are well equipped to move up the ladder when the time comes. A founding member of Australia's First Families of Wine. Exports to the UK, the US, China and other major markets.
