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. 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 supported 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.

About this winery

The Riverina in the south-west of New South Wales is where the story of De Bortoli Wines began. Vittorio De Bortoli arrived in the region after migrating to Australia from northern Italy with little more than a few coins in his pocket. And though the flat plains and fertile red earth of the Riverina were completely different to all he had ever known, Vittorio together with his new wife, Giuseppina, made it their home. The winery at Bilbul remains our home and our heart to this day.

The Bilbul winery is the home of our world-renowned and award-winning dessert wine, De Bortoli Noble One Botrytis Semillon. First created in 1982 and made here ever since, it is one of the most successful and internationally award-winning wines ever produced in Australia.
