Our History


In 1859, George Francis Morris established a vineyard and winery near Rutherglen in North Eastern Victoria. He planted a trial vineyard plot of ten actress at “Fairfield” two miles east of the current Morris “Mia Mia” winery location.


By 1885 plantings had grown to over 200 acres making Morris the largest wine producer in the Southern Hemisphere.


In the late 1890’s the devastating spread of Phylloxera, an aphid like insect that attacks and kills vines, crippled the Rutherglen region.


In 1897 Charles Hughes Morris, son of George, had established a new vineyard at “Mia Mia” only a few kilometres away from the original Morris plantings. Selling his prize-winning horse, Fairfield, to develop the property the Morris winemaking tradition continued and the image of the show jumping horse would become the company trademark.


In 1917, due to the devastating spread of Phyloxera, the Morris Fairfield Estate and Winery was sold.


Charles Henry (Mick) Morris was the first family winemaker to be university educated and returned to Rutherglen to commence his first official vintage as winemaker in 1953. Mick is recognised as a pioneer of the Durif grape variety.


In 1993, Mick’s son, David, became the fifth generation winemaker. Combining 145 years of winemaking tradition with modern techniques David is one of the most awarded winemakers in Australia.


Morris Wines celebrated its 150th year. Key industry figures were invitied to attend the celebration at the historic winery in Rutherglen. Guests were treated to a tasting of Rare CHM Muscat in celebration of the Morris family’s rich and revered histroy.


“These Rutherglen fortified wines have no equivalent in any other part of the world” claims prolific Australian wine writer, James Halliday of Wine Companion.


A momentous year for awards; Morris of Rutherglen Old Premium Rare Liqueur Muscat is classed ‘Best Muscat in the World’ at Muscat Du Monde as well as being recognised by the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) as the 2018 Fortified Producer of the Year.


Morris of Rutherglen celebrates 160 years of winemaking history and tradition. To commemorate this anniversary an Old Premium Rare Tawny was released with strictly limited quantities of exactly 160 cases .
