Overview

Scion is a dynamic and creative boutique wine business established in Rutherglen, North East Victoria. Visit our intimate cellar door, take a wander through our 8-acre vineyard and be guided through our tiny winery. Meet the makers and enjoy our quintessential Australian country setting, only 2km south of the Rutherglen township.Our fruit is carefully hand-picked, wines are innovative/non-traditional and are hand-made with a focus on quality. We specialise in working with the varieties Muscat and Durif, which have been traditionally grown in Rutherglen for many years.We have a distinctive lineage in the Rutherglen region: inspired great-great granddaughter Jan Milhinch and son Rowly established Scion Vineyard from bare earth, 'scions' of pioneering Rutherglen vigneron (1859) GF Morris.Since planting in 2002, Scion has won trophies and gold medals with their hand-crafted wines including Best Australian Durif awarded at the 2010 Rutherglen Wine Show and Best Fortified for 2010 as described by Jeni Port with their Sweet Durif. They have developed innovative styles using the famous Muscat grape variety, including the delicate Rose Muscat dessert wine, a dry aromatic Orange Muscat Rosé and drier aperitif fortified wine, a vintage Brown Muscat.Don't forget to find Scion Vineyard & Winery on Facebook or follow on Twitter.
