Nighty years ago, Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli emigrated from Northern Italy to Australia and established De Bortoli winery in Yarra Valley, Victoria in 1928. Today the winery is in the capable hands of the third generation and has expanded into some of Australia’s best known wine regions across Victoria and New South Wales including Yarra Valley, King Valley, Hunter Valley and Riverina where are the most regional varietals planted. The family children established De Bortoli’s reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines. In 2007, Steve Webber was awarded as “Winemaker of the Year” by Gourmet Traveler WINE Magazine. De Bortoli Wines is the proud recipients of the Australian Wine Company of the Year for 2005, 2006 and 2010 awarded by Winestate Magazine, Australia’s longest running wine publication. One of the 12 Australian First Family Winery (AFFW) Members. Sacred Hill was inspired by the name given by a local hermit to the low rocky outcrop that overlooks the Riverina plain. The hermit, who now has almost mythical status in the region, inhabited a cave in the hillside for many years. Sacred Hill has won awards at major national and international shows including Best Value awards. Leading wine writers have extolled the exceptional quality and value of this popular brand.
