Overview

Vermentino's name is derived from the French court of Philip the Good of Burgundy, Madame d'Or, served as a fool in the 1400's. The belief in medieval days that buffoonery was one of few professions open to women is dispelled by this beautiful golden haired dwarf Jester. She was often described as pugnacious and outspoken conversely she possessed an exquisite voice and a devotion to music and dance. As she was openly favoured by Queen Isabella, Madame d'Or wore only the finest tailored attire, most notably a long dress of green Kendal woollen cloth.

Jester Vermentino is crisp, pure and fresh. The grapes are ripe at low sugar levels, which results in low alcohol wine giving a lightness to the palate.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For such a young winery, Mitolo’s history is rich. It’s one studded with success, wide acclaim, and – most importantly – truly memorable wines. But that’s only to be expected from a winery which, since the very first day, has been motivated by three potent words:

Purity. Elegance. Power.

Those were the guiding principles Frank Mitolo wrote down when he created the winery in 1999. With his Italian heritage and a family history of working the land, Frank was only interested in pursuing excellence. And the results were there immediately in the release of the first Mitolo wine - the 2000 G.A.M. - named after Frank’s children Gemma, Alexander and Marco.

Attracted by this commitment to only create wines of outstanding quality, acclaimed winemaker Ben Glaetzer joined Mitolo as a partner in 2001. With grapes sourced from two of Australia’s premier wine regions, Mclaren Vale and the Barossa Valley, Frank and Ben now work tirelessly to surpass their already impressive achievements. Mitolo Wines, praised by some of the world’s toughest critics, are now enjoyed in more than 20 countries around the world.

And that is just the start.
