Situated entirely within the defined Rutherglen Wine Region, our vineyards total approximately 64 hectares (160 acres) of trialled and proven varieties. Rutherglenís warm and dependable climate is, in many ways similar to the Rhone region of France and it comes as no surprise that the Rhone specialties of Shiraz (known as Syrah in France) and Durif prosper here.
Pride in the past and a commitment to the future by the Campbell Family today is evident with the 4th generation brothers Malcolm (viticulturist) and Colin (winemaker), who together with their wives Jenny and Prue and their mother Isabel, own and operate Campbells Wines. They have been joined by the fifth generation. Susan, daughter of Colin and Prue is our Marketing Manager and her sister Julie provides valuable input into our winemaking team. Since graduating with Honours in Oenology from Adelaide University in 2000 Julie has pursued her passion for shiraz (and languages) around the globe.
At Campbells, we are in a unique and privileged position. We have over four generations of winemaking knowledge, decades of aged stocks and some of the most modern winemaking technology available. This allows us to not only skillfully manage our ancient soleras to produce our Rutherglen Muscats and Tokays, but to capture the pure natural grape flavours of Rutherglen varieties and express them fully in our reds and whites.
