Overview

Rutherglen

Discover the taste of history with a fresh palate in Rutherglen, a historic wine growing area invigorated by a crop of bold young winemakers. Take in stunning gold rush streetscapes, explore the surrounding vineyards, and enjoy outdoor fun in the nearby lakes and rivers.

Quench a thirst

You won't go thirsty in Rutherglen, home to world-beating fortified wines, robust reds and crisp white wines since the early 1800s. Visit revitalised cellar doors and meet fourth and fifth generation winemakers drawing on family tradition and modern techniques to keep Rutherglen on the map.

Learn about winemaking and taste premium wines at the Rutherglen Wine Experience and Visitor Information Centre. Explore the scenic winery circuit in a hired limousine or tour bus, or cycle the banks of the Murray River to wineries along the Muscat Trail.

Top tucker

Linger at cellar door restaurants like Tuileries at Jolimont Cellars, or settle in at picnic areas among the vines. Spend long afternoons in country pubs, and save room for the iconic Parker Pies.

Sample delicious local produce like lamb, honey, Murray cod, cherries, nuts and preserves. Pick up a picnic hamper or stock up on supplies to take home.

Visit in autumn for the High Country Harvest and celebrate the region's finest cuisine, wine and craft beer at more than 40 events over 10 days.

The outdoor life

From sun-soaked summer days to autumnal splendour, the Rutherglen region is the perfect spot for those outdoor adventures with the family. Cast a line in the Murray, pedal along the riverbanks or cruise the waters in boats, canoes and kayaks.

Pick up a bike at St Leonard's Winery and explore the Rutherglen region at your own pace. Join the Pedal to Produce Cycle Trail to sample the very best wine, fruit and produce at local orchards, wineries and cafes. Alternatively, hit the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail and discover the grandeur of the iconic Murray River, from its lush banks in the north to the drier Murray plains. Ride past rolling vineyards and idyllic river landscapes and enjoy warm country hospitality along the way.
