Overview
More
Scion is a producer of artisan wines, handcrafted from vine to bottle. Our vision is to produce premium wines guided by the creative and modern interpretation of traditional Rutherglen varietals. All by hand, we grow and craft small-batch wines – from aromatic afternoon whites to elegant reds and delicate dessert wines. Located just 2km south of Rutherglen on our estate vineyard, Scion’s cellar door is nestled in the natural landscape among grey box gums. Visit to taste our focused range of artisan wines, or BYO picnic to enjoy with a glass overlooking the countryside and working winery. A sustainable future underscores our vision, from the use of solar power to run our winery and cellar door, to a small cluster of beehives enhancing biodiversity on our farm.
