The two families joined together when Norman Killeen married fourth generation Jack Stanton's daughter, Joan, and the last few decades have seen Stanton and Killeen Wines grow to be a pre-eminent producer of luscious fortifieds, Vintage Port and big reds. As one of the few Australian wineries to have seven generations working in the business, S&K have their eyes firmly on the future, planting Iberian varieties best suited to Rutherglen's climate. A traditional, family owned winery with a contemporary touch! « less

Apart from loving the friendly, fluffy winery cat sitting on cartons of wine near the fire; the heavier reds here were very enjoyable. We were served by a lovely man who took his time to talk us through the wines available for tasting, as well as some that were not. Great experience, would recommend!

At last after years of enjoying some of the best muscat Rutherglen has to offer, I have finally made the journey to the Rutherglen and Stanton & Killeen. Like a face to a name, I get to visit where a chunk of my wine cellar comes from. While it was a little lower key than I was expecting, and Easter... More

If you like reds and fortifieds, this is the right place to be. Staff are friendly, cellar door is situated on beautiful premises not too far out of the Rutherglen township. The fortified selection is especially large, including vintage ports, muscat and tokay of varying ages (the latter two can be bought in bulk for those with barrels etc.). Big... More

Another great winery, specialising in the fortified wines too. Worth a visit and even more, worth taking some home too. Thank you for ensuring we experienced everything our tastes desired.

This winery has a superior selection of fortified wines. Probably the best in the region. Good selectIon of tokay, muscat and port. They have a great selection of vintage ports. If you bring your own container they will even sell you their bulk ports! Well worth a visit and taste.

Have enjoyed the fortified wines from this winery for many years. A visit to cellar door is always good and the staff are more than happy to teach you about their product. A great place to visit with excellent wines at realistic prices

Directly across from Campbell's , the muscats and topaque are excellent, a variety of tastings were on offer and well worth trying. The welcome was warm and friendly and will go back.
