Four Families Continue a Legacy
Established in 1921, Buller Wines blends a century of tradition with contemporary winemaking practices to create exceptional wines. The winery is currently co-owned by four local families – Gerald Judd is a sixth generation local and has been at Buller Wines since 2013. David Whyte is the senior winemaker and a Corowa and Rutherglen local. Paul Squires is the marketing and export manager, and Michael Murtagh is a long-time wine industry professional and viticulturist. All four families bring something different to the table, reinvigorating Buller Wines one step at a time.
With more than thirty wines available to taste, there is something for everyone at Buller Wines’ cellar door. Choose from a King Valley Prosecco, a fifty-year-old Calliope Rare Rutherglen Muscat, or an award-winning red or white table wine. The atmosphere is always friendly and the staff welcome everyone from novice wine tasters to experts.
It takes significant skill, passion and energy to take on the role of chief winemaker at Buller Wines. Since 2012, the winery has found these traits in David, who has been tasked with balancing ninety-nine years of tradition with his own style and knowledge. David has taken on this responsibility with pride, helping Buller Wines to develop and grow.
Buller Wine’s new co-owners’ skills have been utilised in every facet of the redevelopment of Buller Wines. All four families have overseen the rejuvenation and planting of the vineyard, winery upgrades and new wines. Malbec has recently been planted in the Calliope Vineyard and new varietals are set to be released in the coming months.
Enjoy a relaxing afternoon indulging in a cheese platter and glass of wine in the newly built prosecco bar, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for centenary celebrations in 2021!
