YOUR DESTINATION FOR HISTORY
Established in Rutherglen in 1921 by Reginald Langdon Buller, the ‘Calliope Vineyard’ was named after the only surviving ship from the Great Hurricane of Samoa – 1889. A.B. (Banjo) Patterson’s ‘Ballad Of The Calliope’, tells the tale in stirring fashion. Reginald’s vision of his new enterprise successfully sailing through the tempests of business and agricultural life proved prophetic. After almost 100 years Buller Wines is a testament to the foresight of Reginald and is a leading winery within North East Victoria.
A NEW ERA
In 2013 the business was purchased by the Judd Family, who are fifth generation locals. Buller Wines has been rejuvenated with a strong focus on investment in winemaking, storage, operations and most importantly, the vineyards. This investment is reflective in the quality of wines produced by Winemaker Dave Whyte.
Our operations are based in the world-renowned Rutherglen Region of Victoria. Rutherglen is internationally recognised as one of the preeminent fortified wine producing regions of the world and Buller Wines leads the way with extraordinary fortified wines in the Muscat, Tokay and Tawny Ranges.
In recent years under the guidance of Dave Whyte we have established ourselves as a coveted Five Star James Halliday Winery. We pride ourselves on the quality of every bottle we produce. We have something for everyone’s taste, from sparkling to award-winning table wines and of course, our world-famous fortifieds.
Nose: Aromas of ink, violets and plums with nuances of toasty mocha.
Palate: A big full bodied wine with flavours of forest fruits integrate with the tannins to provide structure and finish.
Food Match: It’s big, bold and full of flavour so it is time for bold food choices. Try pan seared venison with rosemary and dried cherries or test your culinary skills and give salt and pepper crocodile a go!
