Wine was first produced in Australia in 1820 and within two years the first bottles were being exported, so it is no surprise that Oz is the 4th biggest exporter of wine in the world. The major grapes used in Australia are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc with production concentrated in the cooler southern states of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. The standout wine in the country is Penfolds which rivals the best in the world but we also have a range to suit every palate and occasion.
Having arrived in Australia in the 1950's the Mitolo family began as market farmers growing vegetables, they branched out into the wine industry many years later and produced their first wine in 1999. Their business plan consisted of 6 words - individuality, integrity, quality, purity, elegance and power.
