About Mitolo Winery
Austrialian Mitolo Wines is a family owned business, borne of and led by the founder and owner Frank Mitolo's vision; to create a range of wines of individuality, integrity and utmost quality. Whether it is the in the vineyard, or in the winery, or the work of the many different coopers who source and shape the diverse barrels which are used at Mitolo, each wine is nurtured and developed with a zealous passion that spares no effort or investment to ensure that the best of everything is brought together to make wines of purity, elegance and power.
Italian family roots inspired Frank's early interest and enthusiasm for good food and great wine. With three earlier generations of his family working as agriculturists and entrepreneurs, it is not surprising that (whilst heading an international horticultural business), Frank found the energy and passion to pursue his dream of creating world-class wines.
The business was established in 1999 and a year later the first Mitolo Wine was launched. It was called G.A.M.; named after Frank's three children and the next generation of Mitolo's, Gemma, Alexander and Marco.
Mitolo Wines has since swiftly achieved international recognition with outstanding reviews from globally acknowledged wine critics and a market demand outstripping supply. Acclaimed winemaker, Ben Glaetzer is a partner in the business and the combination of his winemaking skills and Frank's initiative, ambition and shrewd business sense is leading Mitolo Wines to listings on the finest shelves and in some of the best restaurants, bars and hotels across more than 20 countries.
What started out as a dream is becoming an exciting reality, and Mitolo Wines has only just begun on its journey.
