John Gehrig Wines

The late John Gehrig was a fourth generation winemaker who came from one of Victoria’s oldest winemaking family, settling in the late 1850’s at Barnawartha in North East Victoria.

In 1976 John and Elizabeth purchased twenty acres of land at Oxley on the King River and during that year established their first vines. The diversity of this pretty countryside with such a range of viticultural microclimates was an encouragement to settle in the King Valley.

The fifth generation and youngest son Ross Gehrig has taken the reins of the business after sucessfully finishing his Wine Science degree, and multiple vintages in France and Israel.

Ross continues the vision that John and Elizabeth started whilst adding his own stamp to the business.
In 2012 Ross Gehrig and his wife Meghan proudly opened John Gehrig wines in Rutherglen, whilst maintaining the original winery and cellar door in Oxley.
