Buller Location and History
Buller Wines is a sizeable family wine business run by brothers Richard and Andrew Buller. Buller’s original Calliope vineyard and winery was established in Rutherglen by Reginald Langdon Buller in 1921. He named the property after a warship that survived the great hurricane of Samoa in 1889. When Reginald sought to expand the business in 1951, the Swan Hill region provided an ideal location. The Bullers now have vineyard holdings and a second winery, Beverford, in Swan Hill. The company experienced a period of dramatic growth in the late 1970s by focusing on increasing table wine production. Matriarch Valerie Buller was one of the first ever female wines sales reps in Australia and remains actively involved in the running of the business. Valerie’s wonderful bird park is a key feature of the Rutherglen cellar door experience.
The passion of four generations of winemaking tradition is evident in every glass of Buller wine. The Buller brothers take a hands on approach to their craft, learned under the tutelage of their father. Buller is renowned for producing the famous fortified wines of Rutherglen and gutsy, full-bodied reds. Fruit is drawn from estate vineyards and growers in both Rutherglen and Swan Hill. Low yielding, dry grown old Shiraz vines from the Calliope vineyard form the backbone of the portfolio. They make wines of intense flavour and depth. Smaller plantings of alternative varieties include Mondeuse and Cinsault.
Buller Wine Styles
The rich and complex flavours of Buller’s fine old fortified wines are achieved by many years of slow maturation in old oak casks. The Victoria Range of fortifieds is blended from younger material to produce consistency of style and quality.
