Combining Age with Innovation

Our History

100 years of Buller Wines

Building on the Past

Your Destination for History

Established in Rutherglen in 1921 by Reginald Langdon Buller, Our century old ‘Calliope Vineyard’ was named after the only surviving ship from the Great Hurricane of Samoa - 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 testament to the foresight of Reginald and is a leading winery within North East Victoria.

The Buller's name has long been associated with some of Rutherglen's finest fortifieds, a treat many can still enjoy today thanks to our vast inherited collection of premium barrel-aged fortifieds. 

A New Era

Growing with strong roots

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. Buller Wines now has 3 local co-owners; Gerald Judd, David Whyte and Michael Murtagh. Each of these guys brings their own strengths to the team, Dave being our winemaker and Michael a seasoned viticulturist and long-time industry man, so Gerald has a great team beside him!  

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, Topaque 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.

Buller Wines truly is your destination for quality wine, fabulous food, fun events and celebrations.
