Overview

Unearth the unexpected... Nestled in the foothills of the eastern Barossa ranges, Rusden is a family owned and operated producer, specialising in handcrafted wines sourced from the vineyards surrounding the Cellar Door. The Rusden name is synonymous with quality and is unique in the way it operates. We are a single vineyard estate in the Vine Vale sub-region of the Barossa. Rusden’s philosophy incorporates the old Independent Vignerons banner of “Traditional Winemakers” where respect for terroir is paramount. We tend and harvest our own vineyards to ensure that traditional viticultural practises are kept alive. We see ourselves very much as custodians of the land, and seek to minimise our environmental “footprint” in everything we do. The Rusden brand is comprised of ten wines; each made using traditional methods, producing small batches of the highest quality wine, indicative of the Vine Vale terroir. Our aim is to make wines that refine the power of Barossa fruit, yet highlight the floral aromatics and spice characters so evident in wines made from grapes grown in Vine Vale’s sandy soil. Join us at our Cellar Door, share in our unique story and “unearth the unexpected”....

This is an upcoming winery producing some high quality wines. The tasting "menu" is extensive. If you don't buy, do expect to pay $5 a head to taste. Don't worry - you WILL buy. The 'Black Guts' Shiraz is a must - it is about...More

Really nice cellar door with friendly staff. One white, one rose and a few reds available to try (complimentary tastings). I'd recommend a visit to this cellar door if you have time.

We love the concept of sitting casually around the long wooden table. The man (sorry can't remember your name) was laid back and casual but very informative and obviously passionate about wines and his job. Thank you for sharing your lovely wines.
