Cellar Doors

History of Italian owned wineries

Italian immigrants were attracted to the region after the first and second world wars. They started making wines like they had back home to enjoy with family and friends. Demand for their wines saw their passion evolve into thriving businesses, some which are now the largest family owned wine companies in Australia today.

De Bortoli Wines

Country hospitality and delicious, quality wines are the signature of the Cellar Door in Bilbul where the Italian heritage shines through and guests are welcomed like old friends – with a smile and a wine glass at the ready.

Wines aren’t the only attraction – amazing cheese platters to compliment your wine tastings are available all day.
