About us
The De Bortoli family story is one of determination and triumph that started 90 years ago and
is now told, generations later, across Australia. Our heritage encompasses the universal story
of immigrants making good in an adopted land, the rise and rise of the Australian wine
industry and the tale of a hardworking and innovative family who considers good wine, good
food and good friends to be among the true pleasures in life. Today, as a fourth generation
enters the family business, De Bortoli is amongst the top wine producers of Australia with
vineyards spanning 6 premium wine regions.
This wine is a made from a selection of vineyards from the Heathcote region in Victoria. Most
fruit is sourced from the Northern part of the region where we see plusher styles of Shiraz.
Predominant soil types are old volcanic cambrian soils. These soils are red and deep and
known for their water retention. Majority of vineyards are VSP trellised to allow good air flow
and light for balance fruit ripening and flavours.

Fruit is sourced from selected parcels of Shiraz grown on the red volcanic soils of Northern
Heathcote. Fruit is harvested at 14.0-15.0 Baume to achieve a balance of fruit ripeness and soft
acidity. Grapes are destemmed and crushed into static Potter fermenters. Fermented on skins
for up to 14 days prior to pressing and racking. 25% of the blend was matured for 12 months in
older casks and the remainder stays in tank for freshness and brightness.
