One Glass, One Story!
STARDOM aims to supply high quality Australian wines to our customers worldwide, especially in China.
A Visionary Beginning
The first wine from Taltarni Vineyards was released in 1977; immediate success followed with the wine collecting gold at the Royal Melbourne Show – an early acknowledgment of the potential of the vineyard. In 1979, Taltarni’s Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded the Los Angeles Times International Best Red Wine, ahead of world greats.
At 37° latitude, the Pyrenees is in a perfect climatic band for the production of high-quality grapes. The rich soils of red clay, quartz and sandy loam create ideal growing conditions and the cool nights and warm days allow for slow ripening.
Taltarni Vineyard and Winery was founded on the principles of individuality, independence and expression, which still guide us today. Combining old-world traditions with innovative new-world techniques, Taltarni produces a diverse range of high-calibre still red and white wines, and méthode-traditionnelle crafted sparklings.
Remaining steadfast in our commitment to crafting refined wines of elegance and balance, Taltarni’s portfolio continues to be a reflective expression of the varietal and terroir from which our wines are born.
Taltarni Vineyards & Winery is rated in the top 3.7% of wineries in Australia, recognised by James Halliday as a 5 Red Star winery with an impressive 23 wines scoring above 90 points in 2017 alone. Our estate grown wines and the diversity of our portfolio receives acclaim across many wine shows, various publications and from critics both in Australia and internationally.

Their sibling success
“No one will love you or forgive you like your family. My brother, sister and I have an extraordinary working relationship. They forgive my sins, support our wins and are very good and admirable people inside and out. We also enjoy drinking fine wine, which keeps the union strong – family who play together, stay together.”
– Eliza Brown, CEO (and resident ‘Fix-it Girl’)
Richard Buller Wines has a rich heritage of grape growing and wine making that dates back almost 100 years.
Winemaking was a leap of faith for Richard Buller’s grandfather, Reginald (Reg) Langdon Buller. After returning from the First World War, a desk job no longer held any appeal, so he spent six months working at the Mildura Winery. Agriculture was an industry he knew very little about, but in 1921, Reg purchased 170 acres of land at Rutherglen, already partially planted under vine. He called the property Calliope, after a ship that had emerged as the sole survivor of an 1889 hurricane.
The vineyard, affectionately known as Cally, weathered some heavy storms over the years, with the second vintage being completely wiped out by hail. However, Reg’s vision for his new enterprise enabled him to sail through the tempests of business and agricultural life, including the Great Depression.
Following a stint in the navy during World War II, Reg left his son Richard (Dick) in charge at Calliope, while he set up a new vineyard and winery near Swan Hill. Dick oversaw substantial growth of the business and its two wineries, along with his wife Val and three sons. He became one of the leaders in the rapidly growing wine industry and was a judge at the Royal Melbourne Show for twenty years. He saw the advent of wine tourism and the newly popular cellar door sales phenomenon.
A New Chapter
Representing the third generation of family winemakers, Richard Buller’s father, Richard (Dick) Buller, handed him the reigns in 1974.
The Richard Buller Wines head office is based in Melbourne, Australia and that family commitment and passion continues to grow.
Along with his wife Susan, and daughter Kate, Richard continues to drive that vision to deliver wines with quality and integrity. Kate’s three young children, Rippon, Ivy and Archer, who make up the fifth generation of Bullers, delight in spending time in the family vineyards, while their grandfather tends the vines.
