Established in 1921, Buller Wines blends a century of tradition with contemporary winemaking practices to create exceptional wines. The local family-owned winery has been rejuvenated under the stewardship of Gerald Judd, Dave Whyte and Michael Murtagh who have grown the winery into a must-visit attraction within the Rutherglen region. All three local families have seen the rejuvenation and planting of the Calliope Vineyard, winery upgrades and releases of new wines and ranges and are all still a part of the team on site.
Buller wines now offer ‘build your own’ cheese platters in the cellar door, alongside the new Prosecco Bar which is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and a cheese platter! Buller Wines’ century-old winery has recently undergone extensive reinvigoration and is now on display, alongside private tours where you can taste muscat straight from the barrel and learn about wine making techniques that were used in the 1920s.
It takes significant skill, passion and energy to tackle the role of chief winemaker at Buller Wines. Since 2012, the winery has been lucky to find these traits in Dave Whyte, who was tasked with balancing 100 years of tradition, with his own style and knowledge to help the business evolve.
With more than thirty 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, as well as sensational red and white table wines. With an ever-friendly atmosphere, the staff at Buller Wines welcome everyone from novice wine tasters to experts. Be sure not to leave without tasting the exquisite range of Buller Wines’ Calliope Rare Muscat, Topaque and Frontignac.
Buller Wines has recently released a new side project – Three Chain Road Gin. Buller Wines’ winemaker and Three Chain Road Gin’s distiller has expertly blended some of Australia’s finest fortified wines, with his extensive knowledge of spirit having been gleaned from years of using it to create the perfect balance of spirit and wine. Three Chain Road Gin features four signature gins; muscat gin, shiraz gin, elderflower gin and dry gin which can be used to create the perfect cocktail.
⇐ 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.
⇐ RLB Sparkling Rosé

⇐ 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.
