Each bottle of Bass River wine holds a memory – a unique story that starts in the vineyard and becomes a part of your story when you sit down to enjoy it.
We achieve this level of distinctiveness and excellence because we are both vignerons and winemakers. We understand the symbiosis of vineyard and winery, the beautiful process to transform grape into wine.
Our wines are lively with a concentration of flavour and balance; each wine is the conduit to best portray the unique sites where we grow our grapes.
Bass River Winery was the proud recipient of the Best Overall Wine Award at the 2019 Gippsland Wine Show for our '1835 Chardonnay 2018'. This is the second time our wines have placed as best overall in this prestigious competition.
Bass River is a pioneering winery and vineyard in South Gippsland. We craft wines that celebrate the region’s unique biodiversity.
The vignerons, the Butera Family, focus on producing small quantities of premium wines using fruit grown only from their estate vineyard. With an emphasis on expressing terroir and sustainable viticultural principles, we create handcrafted and distinctive wines that speak of the Gippsland region. Our land is bordered by the Bass River and the southern end of the Strzelecki Ranges.Read more...
