Founded in 1921, Buller Wines combines a rich heritage with modern winemaking techniques to produce exceptional wines. Led by Gerald Judd, Dave Whyte and Michael Murtagh, the local family-owned winery has experienced a revitalisation, transforming it into a must-visit destination in the Rutherglen region. Under their stewardship, the Calliope vineyard has been rejuvenated with new plantings, while the winery itself has undergone upgrades and introduced a variety of new wines and ranges.
Buller Wine’s century-old winery has recently undergone extensive reinvigoration and is now on display, alongside the Barrel Perfection Experience where you can taste a range of Muscat straight from the barrel and learn about winemaking techniques that were used in the 1920s. It takes significant skill, passion and energy to tackle the role of chief winemaker at Buller Wines, and since 2012, the winery has been lucky to find these traits in Dave Whyte, who was tasked with balancing one hundred years of tradition with his own style and knowledge to help the business evolve.
With a variety of wines available to taste, there is something for everyone at Buller Wines, from King Valley Prosecco to the winery’s fifty year-old Calliope Rare Muscat. With an ever-friendly atmosphere, the staff at Buller Wines welcomes everyone from novice wine tasters to experts.
Buller Wines has recently released a new side project – Three Chain Road Distillery. Three Chain Road features four signature gins: muscat gin, shiraz gin, elderflower gin and dry gin, alongside seasonal gins and a rare cask-aged whisky. Three Chain Road’s distiller, who is also Buller Wines’ winemaker, has spent countless hours blending some of Australia’s finest fortified wines, and with this experience and his extensive knowledge of spirits, he creates the perfect balance of spirit and wine.
The grounds at Buller Wines now host boutique vineyard accommodation. Overlooking the Calliope Vineyard, eight cabins offer a picturesque stay for wine and nature lovers alike. Wake up to breathtaking views of the vineyard and immerse yourself in the culture that defines Buller Wines. Whether you seek a romantic getaway, a serene weekend retreat of a wine-filled adventure, Buller Wines offers an idyllic and tranquil escape.
⇐ Calliope Shiraz
Grapes for the Calliope Range are handpicked from Buller Wines’ century old vines. Black currants, ripe blood plums, dark chocolate and vanilla dominate the nose of this shiraz. Traditionally fermented with extended maceration on skins to achieve a balance of flavour and intensity. Pair this with beef, rare on the barbecue, sliced thinly in an Asian salad or slow roasted.
⇐ The Nook Prosecco
This prosecco is light and fresh, clean as a whistle, with a touch of sweetness that has been well calculated. It’s inviting and easy drinking with little hints of orange sherbet and blossom. A perfect balance of sweet and dry.
⇐ Calliope Rare Muscat
Awarded 100/100 ‘Perfect Wine’ by Robert Parker and it boasts a deep, dark amber colour as well as layers of flavour and constantly changing aromatics of brown sugar, fig, molasses. The perfect after dinner wine, paired well with a cheese platter.
⇐ 2021 Balladeer Cabernet Sauvignon
Overtones of deep plums, currants and chocolate perfumes the wine. Ripe red berry fruits, firm tannins and great length characterise this single vineyard cabernet sauvignon. This wine has been matured for twelve months in French oak hogsheads.
