University House members and guests are invited to the 2022 Early Music Dinner, in partnership with Buller Wines.

Indulge yourself over a 4-course menu while listening to beautiful tunes and tasting a premium range of wines.

CALLIOPE is the oldest, wisest and most beloved of the nine muses in Greco-Roman mythology. Her name literally means “beautiful-voice” and she was patron of epic poetry and song.

CALLIOPE is also the name of Buller Wines century old vineyard, ‘Calliope Vineyard’, established in Rutherglen in 1921 by Reginald Langdon Buller.


Auncient Hermony
Vivien Hamilton – director, singer
Amelia Jones – singer
Rosemary Hodgson – lute and theorbo
Ruth Wilkinson – viola da gamba and recorder

In honour of the renowned ecstatic harmonies of CALLIOPE’s voice and the poetic and musical eloquence of her muse, early music ensemble Auncient Hermony is to present an intimate, word-based program of Renaissance and early Baroque vocal music.

Buller Wines
with Chief Winemaker, Dave Whyte

Growing up in the Rutherglen region surrounded by vineyards and
wineries, Dave had an interest in viticulture and winemaking from a young age. His High School offered a viticulture and winemaking course and from that moment he was destined for a long career hand-crafting wines of distinction.

Dave joined the Buller Wines team in 2012, assuming the role of Senior Winemaker in 2013, and then Chief Winemaker in 2018. He then became a part-owner of Buller Wines that same year.
