James' Review

Famous among the cognoscenti for its superb Noble One, which in fact accounts for only a minute part of its total production, this winery turns out low-priced varietal and generic wines that are invariably competently made. They come in part from estate vineyards, but also from contract-grown grapes. The rating is in part a reflection of the exceptional value for money offered across the range. In June 2012 De Bortoli received a $4.8 million grant from the Federal Government?s Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program. This grant supports an additional investment of $11 million by the De Bortoli family in their project called ?Re-engineering Our Future for a Carbon Economy?. De Bortoli is a founding member of Australia?s First Families of Wine. Exports to all major markets.

The Bilbul Cellar Door in the Riverina region of southern New South Wales is the original De Bortoli winery established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The Cellar Door is quite modest and intimate and retains its small family winery ambiance. Our staff are friendly and knowledgeable and visitors can learn as much [or as little] as they wish.
