Bass River Winery

Our Review

The Butera family's 44ha property supports grass-fed beef and olive groves as well as viticulture. Pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling, merlot and cabernet were first planted here in '98. Both the winemaking and viticulture are handled by father-and-son team Pasquale and Frank. The small production is principally sold through the cellar door, with some retailers and restaurants in the South Gippsland area. Exports to Japan and the UK. -JAMES HALLIDAY
