Richard Buller, born in 1953 is the eldest of the third generation of the Buller Wines winemaking family.
Named Richard Langdon Buller, after his father also Richard Landgon Buller (known as Dick) and grandson of Reginald Langdon Buller who started the company in 1921.
Richard was educated at the Rutherglen Primary School and finished his secondary schooling at Scotch College in Melbourne.
After a few years under the tutelage of his father Richard, at the tender age of 21 he was sent to Swan Hill to take over the managership and winemaking at the Beverford winery.
Taking to this role like a duck to water, he won 7 medals out of 12 entries for his first vintage, and continued to run and make wine at Beverford for the next 25 odd years. In the past few years he has overseen the running of the winery whilst spending most of his time selling and promoting Buller Wines in Asia.
For many years Richard has been on the board of the VWIA (Victorian Winemakers Association), resigning only recently due to the amount of time spent overseas.
Richard and his wife Susan, have three children Kate, Angela and Richard who are all actively working for the company, and one grandson, Kates son Rippon.
