With a father and daughter winemaking team, Anderson Winery is a tiny family winery and dryland vineyard producing award winning handcrafted wines. Howard Anderson draws on over 50 years of winemaking experience including 15 years at Seppelt, while Christobelle brings fresh ideas and techniques learned both here and abroad.
The Andersons are highly regarded for full bodied reds, as well as sparkling wines which are traditionally handmade and late disgorged. Their most unusual variety is petit verdot, with saperavi planted, and on the way.
When you visit Anderson Cellar door in Rutherglen, you will enter a fully operational winery, and will most likely be served by one of the winemakers – Howard, or his daughter Christobelle.
All Anderson wine is made on site by Howard and Christobelle using traditional methods such as very minimal irrigation, hand-harvesting, basket pressing, open fermentation, and the traditional Champagne technique entirely by hand.
Their family business
“A family business is only important to me if it is important to the next generation, and in our family’s case, it is.”
– Howard Anderson, Director and winemaker and father to second generation winemaker Christobelle.
