Bass River Winery

Bass River cover

Bass River is a tiny winery that bears a resemblance to a small domain in South Gippsland - in size, approach, passion and very often in the glass. The vignerons - the Butera Family - emphasise producing small quantities of premium wines grown only from the estate vineyeard, expressing terrior and organic principles to hand craft distinctive regional wines.

The land is bordered by the Bass River and the southern end of the Strzelecki Ranges. The vineyard is ideally located experiencing cool conditions from the nearby maritime elements. The Butera family has nurtured the land since 1983, with three hectares of vines following some 15 years later in 1998 to construct the House Block. A further three hectares were planted on the west bank of the Bass River in 2006. These two parcels of vines provide the unique character of Bass River wines.
