Overview

Warmer temperatures and consistent winter - spring rains made for an early budburst. A few trucks beat the late January rains but things slowed up till we dried out in the first week of February. Perfect conditions followed as the added soil moisture kept night time temperatures low allowing the fruit to retain its natural acid. The blend was completely picked by mid February allowing us to have it on shelves for spring.

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.
