Lost Wineries of Rutherglen


We currently researching the history of grape growing and wine making in the Rutherglen area. Rutherglen was at one time one of the largest wine growing regions in the Southern Hemisphere and much of the history of the smaller producers has been lost. In the area there are many winery ruins and many winery buildings that have found a second life as a farm shed. We are aiming to bring this history to life with before and after photographs and any anecdotal stories of note. If you have any information that may help us with our work we would be very grateful.  Please contact the research team by using the form below.
