Weve been here before and bought wine. This time the whole thing was just weird. One of the owners took us under his wing and proceeded to talk about films and tell bawdy jokes while we worked our way down about 50 bottle line of wines.

It felt wrong and cheap, and we didnt enjoy or buy anything. Sad as last time we bought cases of the Calliope. Their loss I guess.

We've been visiting Buller's in Rutherglen for about 33 years and are devotees of their old Muscats and Tokays, which we also buy regularly in Melbourne. We also enjoy the bird aviaries. Unfortunately, this visit disappointed in two ways. Firstly, the one girl serving was more interested in eating her lunch than helping customers. Secondly, the cellar door prices were high. For example the Fine Old Tokay was $24 at cellar door, but $15.99 in the local Rutherglen IGA bottleshop and we can buy it anytime for $17.90 in Melbourne. I am happy with cellar doors being a little more to cover service costs, but this much - and for poor service?
We'll still be drinking Buller fortifieds - we still regard them as some of the best, but won't necessarily visit the cellar door on our next visit.

Arrived on a cool damp afternoon and were the only visitors at the time.Our hostess was a Buller family member and the service was outstanding. Have enjoyed Bullers wines over the years and the quality is always up with the best. Nice facilities and well worth the visit

Great cellar door with table wines that are continually improving. The muscat, tokay and vintage port are however the stars of the show. If you like your fortifieds (or table wine) this is a must visit.

Thought keeping birds in conditions like this had been banned in civilised countries.
Little or no access to fresh water or vegetation.
