De Bortoli Wines is a fourth generation family wine company established in 1928, and today is under the custodianship of the third generation.
Over the past several years we have changed our thinking and our approach to growing grapes and making wine. The change is being driven by both philosophical and pragmatic factors but mostly by our desire to leave a legacy for future generations, an idea with resonance for any family-owned company.
Climate change has brought with it an urgent imperative to adopt environmentally sustainable practices. Our future lies in looking after the health of our soils and plants and carefully managing our precious water resources.
De Bortoli Wines is seriously committed to this new approach. We’ve gone well beyond mandatory requirements, adopting a wide range of innovative programs and practices. Water management, an ongoing move to biological farming in an increasing number of our vineyards, and a careful overhaul of our packaging and waste management practices.
