A TRADITION IN WINE MAKING
Dee Vine Estate is a winery established from the traditional family vineyards of Michele and Domenico Scarfone, two brothers who emigrated from Southern Italy in 1956 to settle at Nericon within the Riverina area of Australia.
They planted the first vines on the property the following year, with the vision of producing traditional Italian table wine for the Australian wine drinker. Three generations later, Adrian Bianchini and Fernando Rombola have significantly expanded from their grandfathers original parcel of land, whilst following the same principles; a passion for fine wine and dedication to produce a remarkably distinctive product.

OUR REGIONAL VINEYARDS
The Riverina lies in the south-west region of New South Wales. The area consists of low-lying flood plains, warm to hot climate and an ample supply of water through irrigation that is diverted from the Murrumbidgee river.
The Riverina has been growing wine grapes since 1913 and is the second largest wine producing region in Australia. The area yields almost three-quarters of the entire annual wine volume of New South Wales.
The main soil type of the Riverina is red-brown earth deposited by ancient streams in the area. It is in these free-draining soils around Griffith that the Dee Vine Estate Vineyards are planted.
Founded 1930 by the Rossetto Family.
Our family owned winery from past to present, will consistently endeavour to provide a heavy emphasis on excellence, quality and service.
