Matthew, Marc, Tammie, Karen, myself and all the staff would like to thank you for your continued patronage of Rutherglen Estates during 2011. We wish you, your families and friends a very happy and safe festive season.
We hope you and your friends, are enjoying our wines as much as we do. This year saw the release of two new wines to our portfolio – Rutherglen Estates 2011 Moscato and 2010 Tempranillo. Both wines have been well received by the public, which of course includes you.
Throughout the year, all of our wines have been well received and reviewed by the key influential gatekeepers in the wine industry, which includes wine writers, sommeliers and wine bloggers.
Our sales and marketing team has done a great job in keeping you up-to-date – either when you walk into our Cellar Door or when you visit our website www.rutherglenestates.com.au. They also keep you informed via social media, facebook and twitter, with the latest news and wine offers from Rutherglen Estates. I appreciate their continued passion, letting all our customers know about our story and our wines.
The start to the growing season for the 2012 vintage has gone well. We have received a little more rain than we really want, but it is a long way short of the deluges we had for the same period last year. The vineyards are a picture – our dams are full, and going forward into next year the weather should be fine and dry … fingers crossed. We are excited at the prospect of a great 2012 vintage, and expect to get some great fruit for our winemakers to turn into great Rutherglen Estates wines, for you to enjoy in the years to come.
If you’re coming this way for your Christmas holidays, drop in and see Tammie and her team at our Cellar Door to taste our wines. Also, check out the last days of our Christmas cheers offers – great chance to stock up for Christmas or get some last minute gifts.
Merry Christmas, and make sure you take the time to say “cheers” with a glass or two of Rutherglen Estates wines with your family and friends.
Phil, Karen and the Rutherglen Estates team
