A WEEKEND WITH MT OPHIR ESTATE
Established in 1891, Mount Ophir Estate was once the largest wine producing complex in the Southern Hemisphere.
The property initially boasted 740 acres of vines and twenty houses to accommodate the management and staff. It also had a football and cricket team which regularly won the local Rutherglen competitions.
The wine bore the royal seal of England and was transported via rail to port and then via steam ships to ‘the mother country’ to satisfy the palate of British aristocracy. The winery closed in 1955, and the 740-acre estate was reduced to 140 acres.
Mount Ophir Estate is now operating as an exclusive site for private events, getaways and unique, luxury accommodation. We're blessed to be able to call it home for the first AWW
