Vineyard Info

Our efforts are on producing fruit of the highest quality and expressive wines brimming with flavour and varietal character. Deakin Estate's range of wines was launched in 1994 in limited quantities. Since then our investment in extensive vineyard plantings has allowed us to share our distinctively Australian wines with customers around the world. The Mildura region was transformed from an arid, scrubby, no man's land, to an agricultural oasis in the 1880's. Alfred Deakin, a former Prime Minister of Australia, encouraged the development of the vast inland valley of the Murray River in North West Victoria. The Deakin Estate property and its wines are named in honour of that visionary, Alfred Deakin.

Purchased in 1967, Deakin Estate was planted to premium wine grapes which were sold as fruit until 1980 when a winery facility was built. Deakin Estate’s family owned vineyards lie near Mildura in north west Victoria. Here, the mighty Murray River weaves across the land, bringing life to the region and to our vines. Rich, fertile soils and a warm, sunny climate also create a perfect environment for growing quality fruit to make these delicious wines.
