De Bortoli Wines - Yarra Valley, Chief Winemaker - Steve Weber
De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.
Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.
Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
Below is a selection of Yarra Valley Wines, all made by winemaker, Steve Webber, with the exception of the infamous Noble One dessert wine, which is made in New South Wales. Steve is married to Leanne de Bortoli. Leanne is manager of the Yarra Valley estate and they have two children, Kate and Sally.
WineOnline.ie had the privIlidge of a masterclass with Steve when he visited Dublin recently where he ran through all of these wines. We are proud stockists of the full De Bortoli range and advocates of a visit to Steve and Leanne's vineyard in Yarra Valley when in Melbourne. We wish them continued success and many happy vintages to come!
