The ''you''ve found us'' exclamation on the sign at the front gate gives visitors to this rustic cellar door a glimpse of the unique wine experience available within.
The first thing you notice is the impressive array of bottles on the tasting bar where you will find more than 30 different wines, including many lesser-known wines such as Muscadelle, Blue Imperial and Chasselas in the line up. Look out for a particularly interesting variety called Gouais which is a parent plant of Chardonnay.
Another surprise is the friendly invitation to sample the wines without any pressure and a lack of pretence - all beautifully explained in the very amusing pricing policy poster displayed on the wall.
Rosewood''s gnarled old low-yielding vines, many of which are more than 100 years old, yield fruit brimming with highly concentrated flavours for their world renowned Muscat, Tokay and Port styles.
Now celebrating more than 150 years since settling in Rutherglen, the family still operates from the original site. The laconic Bill Chambers OAM is often to be found at the cellar door over the weekends but it is his son Stephen who now makes the wine. Stephen took over the winemaking function in 2001 and is Rosewood''s 6th generation. This small winery is truly a treasure trove and not to be missed.Visit Website
