There are six different Rutherglen wineries participating in the search.  By visiting the cellar doors of All Saints, Campbells, Morris, Pfeiffer, Rutherglen Estates and Stanton and Killeen, you can taste our muscats from the three glasses and choose for yourself which offers the best tasting experience in regards to aromatics, flavour and perception. Continue reading...
