Located at the base of Mt. Buller in North-Eastern Victoria, the Delatite Estate specializes in the growth and production of cool - climate grapes used to make elegant wine. Robert and Vivienne Ritchie, the original founders of the winery and vineyard, established this property in 1968 but the family’s history of working on the vineyards of Victoria dates back to almost 170 years. It is now owned and managed by their son David. Strict rules and principles are followed by the whole team, comprised of skilled and experienced workers, whose aim is to conserve the environment and leave it in a better condition than what they had originally started working with. As the estate is located in a sub - alpine and cool - climate area, the delicious wines produced display European complexity as well as structure. These wines pair beautifully with most food items and mature beautifully for around 10 - 15 years.
