De Bortoli

The De Bortoli story started 90 years ago with Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli creating a life for themselves as new immigrants to Australia from war-torn Europe.

They acquired land through work and support from friends, and from there began to make small amounts of dry table wine. Initially they were providing drink for fellow immigrants but as time went on Vittorio and Giuseppina's son Deen and his wife Emeri grew the family and more people came onboard to grow the business.

The De Bortoli reputation of producing premium wine grew fast and started from their iconic dessert wine 'Noble One' and continued as they expanded into Yarra Valley.

The fourth generation are now beginning to take the De Bortoli reigns and have the responsibility of upholding the official motto of "Semper ad Majora" - “always striving for better,” and the unofficial one "good food, good wine and good friends."
