Australia’s First Families of Wines: Feast with the Campbells

Rutherglen has been our family’s home for over 145 years and capturing regional characters in our complex, elegant wines is at the heart of our winemaking philosophy.

Campbells have championed Rutherglen Durif over many generations of family winemaking. Fourth generation winemaker, Colin, could see its potential as a table wine back in the early 90s and made it his lifelong ambition to ‘tame’ it.

He did so by harnessing the brute force of flavour and tannin and moulding it into a seamless, structured wine with both flavour and finesse. 

When it comes to a food match, you can’t go past the classic combination – a juicy eye fillet steak with red wine and mushroom jus. Durif complements the earthy mushroom flavours and the depth of flavour in the jus and its robust structure works well with the steak. And a splash of Durif added to the jus brings the two together in perfect harmony. 

“It was always a treat for us to come home and enjoy this dish as a family. Dad would cook the eye fillets on the barbeque with his loyal labrador by his side and Mum and us girls would prepare the accompaniments.” Susie Campbell
