"Winemaking has been a family tradition in Rutherglen since the 1850s and today fourth, fifth and sixth generation winemakers produce outstanding, award-winning wines. Vines came to Rutherglen along with the Gold Rush of the 1850s and today crisp whites, rich reds and world-famous fortified wines are produced with a unique regional character.Rutherglen is the unchallenged capital of fortified wines in Australia, with many of its great wines recognised throughout the world.
Grand brick buildings and wineries such as All Saints Estate and Fairfield House speak of the prosperity of the late Victorian era and the glory days of the 19th century. The crop of new, young winemakers respect the wonderful heritage of the region, and have added a new level of innovation, quality and excitement." - Wine Australia
