"Bass River is a pioneering winery and vineyard in South Gippsland – that focuses on crafting wines celebrating the region’s unique biodiversity.
The vignerons, the Butera Family, produce small quantities of premium wine using fruit grown only from their estate vineyard. With an emphasis on expressing terroir and sustainable viticulture principles, we create handcrafted and distinctive wines that speak of the Gippsland region.
Our land is bordered by the Bass River and the southern end of the Strzelecki Ranges. The location of the vineyards planted is perfect for experiencing cool conditions from the nearby maritime elements. The Butera family has nurtured the land since 1983.
The wines are carefully monitored to determine when to intervene and when to let the wine carry on naturally. Our team takes pride in our ability to work cohesively with every aspect of the wine's development, to create the best wines possible from our patch of earth - the proof of which is in your glass." - Bass River
