The Rathbone family have owned and operated the Rathbone Wine Group for over 25 years. The group and its wineries were founded on the pillars of pride, passion and commitment, along with the family’s multi-generational experience in wine and agriculture.
Some say you have to be born into wine, but all family legacies have a beginning. For the Rathbone family, that beginning was a small Yarra Valley vineyard site they purchased in 1995. Soon thereafter, their dream of a family wine business became a reality. Learn about the Rathone family’s decades-long wine journey and the Rathbone Wine Group’s accomplishments to date.
