The Riverina in the south-west of New South Wales is where the story of De Bortoli Wines began. Vittorio De Bortoli arrived in the region after migrating to Australia from northern Italy with little more than a few coins in his pocket. And though the flat plains and fertile red earth of the Riverina were completely different to all he had ever known, Vittorio together with his new wife, Giuseppina, made it their home. The winery at Bilbul remains our home and our heart to this day.
The Bilbul winery is the home of our world-renowned and award-winning dessert wine, De Bortoli Noble One Botrytis Semillon. First created in 1982 and made here ever since, it is one of the most successful and internationally award-winning wines ever produced in Australia.
