Event Details

Mount Ophir Estate

Rutherglen Corowa Unlocked

On the 25th and 26th of August Destination Rutherglen and Federation Council will launch the inaugural Rutherglen Corowa Unlocked weekend.

A weekend of unlocking secrets in a region of great history and significance and insights into some of Victoria’s most interesting private estates, architecture and historic buildings.

Hidden behind 100-year-old wooden doors, gates and within our regional streetscapes are some historic gems that should not be missed.

Mount Ophir Estate (est 1891) is proud to be involved in this collaboration with the gates only open to the public twice in over twenty years, this is a chance to join a private tour of the estate by entrepreneurs and siblings,

Eliza and Nicholas Brown. 

Listen to the owner's journey of purchasing a historic estate in May 2016, the renovation of five historic houses and the history of the winery and halls.

Enjoy hearing about the past, present and future for the estate, including the burgeoning accommodation business and the exciting rejuvenation of the Mount Ophir Estate wine brand. 

Eliza and Nick will also share insights into their experience in owning other historic properties, All Saints Estate(est 1864), St Leonards Vineyard (est 1860) and how this purchase had dovetailed into a regional success story.


Saturday 25th of August- 11pm

Saturday 25th of August- 2pm

Sunday 26th of August- 2pm

Tours are limited to 20 people.

There is a $10 charge per person which includes the tour and exhibition and all funds will be donated to the Rutherglen Historical Society.




Local photographer and vigneron, Georgie James, has documented the initial purchase of the estate in May 2016 and the two-year transformation. 

Georgie’s documentary photography style of capturing the beauty, darkness and humour of her subjects and objects is a fascinating and stunning library of Mount Ophir’s initial state, ‘A Beautiful Mess’, and the ongoing reawakening of this mysterious and magical place.
