Hailing from the sun baked southern Italian region of Calabria, Vincent Cirillo immigrated to South Australia in 1946 with over 400 years of wine making history in the family spanning 9 generations. The Barossa Valley became home in 1842, along with the acquisition of some remarkable vineyards planted in 1848, making them of some of the very first Barossa Valley vines ever planted. These parcels of Grenache and Semillon are now recognised as the oldest surviving and producing examples of these varietals in the world. Today, Marco Cirillo, the youngest of Vincent & Lina’s four children leads all facets of the Cirillo story, from viticulture to winemaking to winery management. Marco studied winemaking in Wagga Wagga and has had honed his skills as an exceptional talent who is immensely proud to showcase his rare earth. In the last 50 years only Vincent and Marco have pruned the 1848 Grenache vineyard, such is the fastidious accountability for these treasures. Marco, wife Annika (of the famous Lehmann family) and young daughters Maya and Ella carry on the Cirillo traditions.
