De Bortoli is without doubt one of Australia’s prolific wine producers, with a focus on multiple price points across three key regions, Victoria’s Yarra Valley and Heathcote, and the Riverina, NSW. Despite the size of their portfolio however, the family-owned business still maintains a solid commitment to environmental sustainability, with a strong focus on water and waste management at the viticultural and winemaking levels.
The latest brand to join the De Bortoli stable is 17 Trees, a range of vegan and eco-friendly, easy drinking wines with a purpose; in partnership with NFP organisation Trillion Trees, De Bortoli will plant one native tree for every six bottles of 17 Trees sold.
The range includes the 2020 Pinot Grigio (A$20), a crisp, refreshing and highly energetic blend of fruit from the Riverina and King Valley, and the full-bodied, fruit-driven 2019 Shiraz (A$20) from Heathcote. All bottles are made from lightweight recycled glass, with labels printed on recycled paper derived from sugar cane waste.
