In 2009 Jim and Maria Kakridas, wine lovers, purchased the Estate with big plans for their family’s future. Their daughter Christina took charge of business operations and in two short years has managed to turn Nillahcootie Estate vineyard into a family owned and operated business. Jim and Maria’s children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces all contribute from vineyard to company management. Leaving the winemaking to some local experts including Ros Ritchie, Sam Plunket and David Ritchie just to name a few. This now family owned and operated Estate is progressing into the local and Melbourne Metropolitan markets and beginning to move their way into the International markets with primary focus on China the United States of America. Varieties include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Merlot and more recently Semillion. The cool climate and close proximity to Lake Nillahcootie, allows for the production of premium wines.
