Anderson Winery is located in the Rutherglen wine region of Victoria's Legands, Wine & High Country (North East Victoria).

Howard Anderson has worked in the wine industry for his entire working life. Despite having no family connections with the wine industry, his first job after completing High School was as a trainee winemaker in a family winery in NSW.

He later worked for B. Seppelt & Co, and gained enormous experience as a Senior Winemaker during his 14 years at their Great Western winery - the showplace for Seppelt's Methode Champenoise wines and premium still wines.

His job with Seppelt brought him to Rutherglen several times as the relief / locum winemaker at their Rutherglen winery, as early as 1972. After tiring of the politics of a large winery, he decided to relocate permanently to Rutherglen, and spent about 5 years as the Winemaker and General Manager of Jolimont Wines in Rutherglen.

In 1992 he bought the 24ha block of land on Chiltern road, Rutherglen where Anderson winery and vineyard is now situated. The winery building and cellar door was built, and planting started that same year with one hectare of shiraz.

Howard made his first, very small vintages in 1991 and 1992, using the facilities at some other local wineries.

The new winery was ready for action for the 1993 vintage, and cellar door opened in March 1993. Daughter Christobelle is now the new generation winemaker.
