Known worldwide for their fortified wines, the Winemakers of Rutherglen have joined forces to successfully sell their region as a tourist hotspot and promote their burgeoning still-wine scene.

All Saints Estate

Star Cellar Door, Best Large Cellar DOor & Best Accommodation

1800 021 621

All Saints Estate is the undisputed Star Cellar Door in Rutherglen for 2020. The Brown siblings (father Peter was one of the Brown Brothers), Eliza, Angela and Nick have diversified their offering with accommodation fit for a king at Mount Ophir Estate, luxury wine tours in a vintage Rolls Royce, and a cheese tasting room, to name just a few things.

That’s in addition to their already incredible castle of a cellar door (quite literally), their sister cellar door St Leonards Vineyard down the road, their excellent Terrace Restaurant on-site and their Thousand Pound Wine Bar & Store in town on the main street (I will rave about the arancini balls for the rest of my days).

The grounds of the cellar door are immaculately cared for and the tasting room is spacious. There’s even a viewing platform with a birds-eye look at the winemaking in action. JULIAN RIFKIN
