Mitolo had a meteoric rise once Frank Mitolo decided to turn a winemaking hobby into a business. In 2000 he took the plunge into the commercial end of the business, inviting Ben Glaetzer to make the wines. Split between the Jester range and single vineyard wines, Mitolo began life as a red wine–dominant brand but now produces a range of varietals. In November ’17 Mitolo opened their $3 million tasting room, restaurant and event space with a flourish. Exports to all major markets.
Mitolo Wines is a family owned business, borne of and led by the founder and owner Frank Mitolo whose vision is to create a range of wines of individuality, integrity and utmost quality. In 2000 Frank formed a partnership with his friend, Ben Glaezter, with the implicit goal of creating the finest interpretation of McLaren Vale Shiraz.
