Overview

Warmer temperatures and above average winter–spring rains made for an early budburst. A few loads of fruit beat the late January rains but things slowed up for a week until we dried out. Perfect dry conditions followed for the rest of vintage, with the added soil moisture keeping night time temperatures lower then usual. This allowed the fruit to retain fresh acid in whites and good colour/flavour in reds. 2016 will be remembered as one of the earliest and most compressed vintages on record with harvest over mid March.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.

Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.

Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
