A tiny Rutherglen winery housed in a collection of rusty corrugated iron sheds is again enjoying the limelight of international acclaim for their Muscat and Tokay wines.
Six generations of winemaking at Chambers Rosewood Winery has been acknowledged with a listing in the November issue of the prestigious American publication ‘Wine&Spirits’ magazine under the International Wineries of the Year section.
