Deen De Bortoli created his Vat Series with the idea of developing a range of delicious, full-flavoured wines at an affordable price. Deen personally selected the blends and chalked the numbers on the vats to identify them. The Vat Series includes traditional varietal wines and also wines made from interesting, newer varieties to Australia.

Enticing aromas of citrus zest, peach and bush honey with a wisp of quince and sweet vanillin oak.

Expert Reviews

"Never discovered great dessert wine? Here’s your ticket. De Bortoli set the standard for the finest botrytis semillon in the country with Vat 1, then established the benchmark for value in Vat 5. The 2007 made such a storm that I could not imagine that it could be replicated. But here it is, in its unctuous layers of golden syrup, honey, marmalade, glacé fig, butter on toast and crème brûlée. Acid balance is soft and supportive and the length is astonishing. Real dessert wine at an imposter’s price!"

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.
