Overview

Gulf Station is the original pastoral holding of the Bell family who settled in the Yarra Valley in 1864.

The site of the De Bortoli Winery was known as the “Summer Paddock”. It had a large dam, held green pasture throughout the dry summer months and was a cool place to be seen drinking premium Yarra Valley wine. The Gulf Station range of wines are made from both estate grown fruit and that of other low yielding, premium Yarra Valley vineyards.

Delicate palate showing varietal spice. Textured flavours balanced by crisp mineral acidity.

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.
