About This Venue
If you love a small winery which has loads of history, then John Gehrig Wines is for you.
The winery is operated and owned by a husband and wife team. Rutherglen has a historic winery shed transformed into a cellar door. Situated on the site is the old Gooramadda school site which makes a nice secluded personal area for ceremonies, and beyond that is the front dam and of course plenty of vineyard for that picture-perfect moment in the background, which also makes a lovely spot for a lawn ceremony and a glass of sparkling!

Owner / Manager
The Gehrig family is justifiably proud of its reputation as one of the older winemaking families in Victoria, with a heritage stretching back to the late 1850s. John Gehrig was a fourth generation vineron and John’s son Ross has taken on the challenge of guiding the fifth winemaking generation of Gehrigs to craft some fine wines.
In 2011, the allure of returning back into John’s original birthplace – Rutherglen- was too strong, thus Ross and Meghan expanded to a new vineyard and historic cellar door site in Gooramadda (East Rutherglen) which is also steeped in history with a heritage listed building. Ross and I, Meghan, have two children Grace and Conrad (13 and 11) and full of energy and passion for the winery, so you may even catch then helping us setting up for your lovely day. Ross and I are very much invested into the business being family-operated, love our wines and if we get any time away from the site we enjoy water-skiing with friends and I, like any girl, love to shop!
