Some people have a little trouble finding Chambers Rosewood, a very relaxed family owned winery established in 1858 and operated by the legendary Bill Chambers and his son Stephen, the 6th generation of this family to make wine at Rosewood
New visitors are constantly astounded by the extensive offerings of reasonably priced red and white wines, Sherries and Ports, while those who have been before are reassured that value for money is still very much the norm at Chambers. Internationally acclaimed for Muscats, Tokays and other fortified wines, Chambers Rosewood have a comprehensive range of wines to suit every palate and budget with everything from cleanskin wines to 2 litre flagons and bulk wines on offer.
You can travel down Barkly Street Rutherglen and not even notice the tiny little winery housed in a collection of corrugated iron sheds, yet Chambers Rosewood is internationally acclaimed. Afficianados of Australian fortifieds could easily be forgiven for not realising that some of the world’s finest Muscat are produced here. This small, family operation was established by William Chambers in 1858 and has operated as a winery continuously ever since long enough for the sixth generation of Chambers to make wine here. The ancient rare cuvees date back to soleras from 1890, the non-irrigated vines, many of which are over eighty years old, produce low yields with wonderful concentrated flavours.
Much of the family documentation and historical information has been pieced together by Wendy Chambers. She was very pleased to uncover details pertaining to a pivotal character in the Chambers story. It now seems that the young Prussian man who lived on an adjoining property and shared his wine making experience with the first generation Chambers family, did not disappear without a trace. Anton Ruch has been acknowledged over the years for his contribution to the Chambers Rosewood story, a history rich in fascinating characters such as the third generation Chambers who was responsible for many early innovations laying the foundation for future generations.
Today, Chambers Rosewood may not be a flash place but it is undeniably memorable! You will also find homemade jams, pickles and the Tavenders range of gourmet dressings as well as Lyric Olive Oil - even wine infused chocolate at the rustic cellar door. A commitment to providing good wine, reasonable prices and excellent service is right in tune with modern styles. The Chambers family and staff thank those who appreciate their wines, for valuing their efforts and for rewarding merit with loyalty.
Delta Air Line’s globe-trotting customers can now enjoy the labours of the Chambers family who have been producing wine at their rustic Chambers Rosewood cellars in Rutherglen for the past 150 years. Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson selected just eight wines from more than 900 wines tasted and assessed to meet Delta's strict criteria for outstanding flavour, brand recognition, diversity and destination connection. Stephen Chambers believes this exposure to passengers enroute to more than 300 destinations, across 50 countries, proves that Rutherglen makes world-class wines.
