Rutherglen Estates is proud to announce that Marc Scalzo, our Chief Winemaker and General Manager, has been named amongst the finalists in this years’ Gourmet Traveller WINE ‘Australian Winemaker of the Year’ awards.
Marc has been instrumental in developing the product range for Rutherglen Estates, which reflects his love of, and the suitability of our vineyards, for Italian and Mediterranean varietals.

Marc says of the announcement, “I am honoured to have been named as one of the finalists in the 2016 ‘Australian Winemaker of the Year’ awards, it is wonderful recognition for the hard work our team has put in over the years. I am lucky to have such a great team behind me here at Rutherglen Estates.”
