Our Gastronomic Philosophy
On Jones Road, Rutherglen, the Jones family traditions of grape growing, winemaking and cooking have been kept alive for six generations.
Today, Arthur and Mandy Jones cultivate Rutherglen’s specialties of Durif, Shiraz and Muscat, as well as inspired plantings of Ugni Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne, among others. Vines have been nurtured here since 1860. The property is also home to Murray Grey cattle, bred for the table.
Mandy’s winemaking expertise is informed by 14 years’ experience in the Premier Cotes de Bordeaux region, as winemaker for Chateau Carsin and a student at Le Cordon Bleu, in addition to oenology and applied science studies at Charles Sturt, Melbourne & Bordeaux Universities.
I can confirm that, in my view, the Jones L.J.Shiraz is one of the best wines known to man!
Trying new wineries is a pastime of exploration that rarely fails to excite. Can I say this point of exploration is one of the best...fantastic rustic atmosphere, great food gorgeous wine and people that are just absolute salt of the earth...bloody superb. ...thank you

We had a wonderful lunch in perfect surroundings.
Thank you for the beautiful afternoon on our drive from Sydney to Melbourne. It was the perfect stopover with excellent food and wine.
We love Jones! We’ve made it a compulsory stop whenever we visit Rutherglen / Beechworth... Fabulous and innovative food, fresh, seasonal, thoughtful; great service and a marvellous host in Mandy, winemaker extraordinaire whose long and respected career includes a lengthy sojourn in France...
