My parents Nina and Steve are both Greek immigrants to Australia and met each other while picking grapes in the Riverland in 1961. They soon bought a plot of land on which to build a farming business and in 1965 they proudly picked the first grapes off their own vineyard.
I grew up amongst these vines, learning the family business before founding the winery next to our vineyard in 1985. Our winemaking style quickly struck a chord as we began exporting our wines around the world, finding particular early success in the UK and Canada.
From these beginnings we have grown to become one of Australia’s most significant grape growers and wine exporters, strongly focused on long term relationships with customers around the world and building our reputation for quality, reliability and continuous improvement.
Sadly Nina passed away in 2019 but Steve still can be found out in the vineyard, while I continue to run the winery and vineyards. My wife Ivanka looks after key export customers while our three daughters have the ‘Mo Sisters Vineyard’ and have started to add their own chapters to our family’s journey in wine.
