Winery Walkabout 2016 Photo Library

We had a blast this year at Winery Walkabout, one of Victoria's biggest wine festivals. Great weather meant the crowds could enjoy the sunshine (except for a wet and windy 20 minute stint on Saturday) and the George McFloyd Blues Band kept everyone's toes tapping. There was a touch of excitement when a shuttle bus got bogged but it wouldn't be a country festival without a tractor to save the day.  Here's a selection of photos from #WineryWalkabout2016 and we look forward to seeing old and new faces next year! Continue reading...

Vintage 2016 Winemaker's Report

Friday, May 27, 2016

It was an early start to vintage, picking Chardonnay the day before Australia Day, but we had expected it so we were (sort of) ready for it. The next cab off the rank was the muscat for Moscato and Sparkling Muscat Blanc – this must be a bit of a winemaking record; we picked on the 4th February and bottled on the 9th of March! As is usual for vintage, it was days of frenetic activity as this early fruit came in, followed by a bit of a “phony vintage” lull, and then it all kicked off again. Continue reading...

Vintage 2016 Vineyard Report

Friday, May 27, 2016

The journey to harvest in 2016 proved to be a bumpy ride. Winter and spring of 2015 were both warmer than usual, with October and November giving us unusual temperature spikes 6°C above average.  Whilst many people were delighted with an early start to summer (we at least were pleased about the lack of frosts in September and October), our vineyards experienced very early flowering patterns as a result of the warmer weather.  Continue reading...

We've planned a jam-packed line up up of fun and entertainment at S&K so buy your tickets soon so you don't miss out.  Continue reading...

In March, Georg Riedel from the world renowned premium glass manufacturer, Riedel Wine Glass Company, visited Rutherglen on the quest to find the perfect glass for one of Australia’s iconic wine styles- muscat. Having tasted some of what this region has to offer in 14 different glasses, the search was narrowed to three. 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...
