A peek behind the curtain
Life creates the moments, we create the wine.
There’s a certain charm about spending time with friends and family sharing old memories, creating new ones and delighting in a glass of wine.
As a family we appreciate the simple things in life, and it’s all about good times, but we take our winemaking very seriously.
While we make our home in the Murray Darling region, we also look beyond these boundaries to unearth the best quality grapes Australia has to offer.
Along with our dedicated team, we are passionate about crafting great wines at prices that won’t break the bank, offering our consumers wines that constantly surprise and delight, for both their exceptional quality, and modest prices.
Wine writers agree, with reviews that regularly praise our wines as “Best Buy” and “Top Value” (check out our ‘reviews and awards’ page for more details).
Wine is a part of our everyday life; we’ve crafted our wines so they can be a part of your everyday too.
The Zilzie Story
After nearly three decades of growing grapes for some of Australia’s best known wine brands, the Zilzie winery was built in 1999 with the first vintage released under the Zilzie name in 2000.
The increasingly popular and distinctive Selection 23 range was introduced in 2004, while 2008 saw the re-release of our Bulloak range.
2009 has seen the culmination of many years dedication to selective vineyard sourcing deliver the “REGIONAL COLLECTION” of Zilzie wines. We’ve combed Australia’s best known wine regions, specifically targeting the varieties they excel at, for exceptional grape parcels to produce these wines.
We’ve come a long way in 10 years, with our winery tripling in capacity, and our range growing from the humble beginnings of four varieties, to now include consumer favourites such as Pinot Grigio, Moscato and Rosé.
It’s not all about size, Zilzie is also recognised for its exceptional quality, having won 27 trophies in its short history and is the only winery from our region rated 4.5 stars by James Halliday in his 2009 Wine Companion.
