The definitive guide to Australian Wines
The Forbes family has been farming since the early 1990s; Zilzie is currently run by Ian and Ros Forbes, with sons Steven and Andrew, and the diverse range of farming activities includes grapegrowing from substantial vineyards. Having established a dominant position as a supplier of grapes to Southcorp, Zilzie formed a wine company in '99 and built a winery in 2000, expanding it in '06 to its current capacity of 45000 tonnes. The wines consistently far exceed expectations, given their enticing prices, that consistency driving the production volume to 200 000 dozen (the last known publicised amount) - this in an extremely competitive market. The business includes contract processing, winemaking and storage. Exports to the UK, Canada, Hong Kong and China.
