RUTHERGLEN | Scion Vineyard & Winery was established in 2002 and specialises in shaping classic regional varieties of Durif, Muscat and Viognier into premium contemporary wines. Wines are made onsite and by hand by Rowly Milhinch , using traditional wine making methods. Tradition runs deep in the family in fact – Rowly is the great-great-great grandson of George Francis Morris, the founding father of Morris Wines (est. 1859).

What’s notable about Scion is that the are very passionate about food and wine, with food (and France) guiding the wine making. They have five grape varieties (Durif, Shiraz, Orange Muscat, Viognier and Brown Muscat) which they craft into a focused selection of eight wines ranging from whites to reds to dessert wines. Scion is one of our favourite Rutherglen wineries, with their “After Dark” semi-sweet fortified Durif being of particular note – think plum liqueur, fruit cake, and chocolate with just the right level of sweetness.

The focus at Scion is on quality, not quantity – fruit is hand-picked before making a 400m journey to the winery and cropping rates are low, between 2-3 tonnes an acre. When you drink the wines, it’s clear that the focus on quality has paid off.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
