James' Review

Rutherglen Estates is one of the larger growers in the region. The focus of the business has changed: it has reduced its own fruit intake while maintaining its contract processing. Production has turned to table wine made from parcels of fruit hand-selected from five Rutherglen vineyard sites. Rhone and Mediterranean varieties such as durif, viognier, shiraz and sangiovese are a move away from traditional varieties, as are alternative varieties including zinfandel, fiano and savagnin. Exports to Singapore, Thailand and China.

About this winery

Rutherglen Estates aims to redefine the traditions of the world’s best fortified-producing region, by creating premium table wines based on traditional, Mediterranean and alternative varietals.


Their wine range is therefore inspired by the region’s traditional styles and reflects its climatic suitability for growing the classic white and red grape varieties of France’s Rhone Valley and Italy. These wines are produced entirely from fruit grown on Rutherglen Estates' vineyards, with professional winemaking and viticultural teams using a combination of traditional and modern, cutting edge methods to deliver an innovative range of top quality premium wines.


The historic cellar door building was originally built as cellars in 1886, and today is home to Tuileries restaurant and café, luxury accommodation, conference facilities, as well as Rutherglen Estates Cellar Door. It is located in the centre of Rutherglen on Drummond Street.


Rutherglen Estates is internationally celebrated for producing inspired varietals and blends from Viognier, Marsanne, Fiano, Savagnin, Shiraz, Sangiovese, Mourvedre, Grenache and Durif. Wines are available in Australia directly from their Cellar Door, online or through selected retail outlets and restaurants in Australia.


Open 10am to 5.30pm, 7 days a week. Closed Christmas Day and Good Friday.
