Wine-tasting - Rutherglen region

The Rutherglen region in the far north of the state is renowned particularly for its fortified ports and muscats, perfect for a winter’s night. There are no organically certified wineries in the area, although several wineries are adopting organic principles, including Valhalla Wines and Scion Vineyard (which has a cellar door partially built with recycled timbers). Lilliput Wines is a chemical-free wine-maker and a registered Land for Wildlife property. All three establishments have tastings on site. You can travel between the wineries on a mountain bike rented from the visitor centre in Rutherglen (bookings required on weekends). And later, you can work off those calories from the wine with a self-guided stroll through historic Rutherglen. The walk takes about an hour and includes everything from historic pubs and buildings from the mid-1800s, through to gardens, convents, churches and schools.
