Trentham’ s winery has been operating since 1988, where it has grown from the initial 30 tonne crush to a minimal but state-of-the-art facility handling up to 5,000 tonnes of premium fruit each vintage. It allows the flexibility to perform different winemaking styles, resulting in the diverse and always consistent Trentham Estate wines.
Today, Anthony is assisted with the making of Trentham’s wines by Winemakers Shane Kerr and Kerry Morrison, along with a dedicated team of cellar and laboratory staff.
The winemaking philosophy at Trentham Estate has always been to produce high-quality varietal wines at an affordable price, with an emphasis on full fruit flavour and palatability.
Over the years Trentham Estate has produced a good balance of classic wine styles mixed with a number of alternative varieties. Anthony and Patrick have a passion for producing wines true to their natural varietal character, as well as experimenting with grape varieties that are lesser-known yet likely to thrive in the Mediterranean climate Mildura and the Murray Darling wine region are known for.
The awards received by many of these wines attest to the well-considered selection of varietals together with careful winemaking.
Trentham Estate is proud to export half of its annual production to a range of countries. The wines are available throughout Australia and of course in the Estate’s own Cellar Door and Restaurant – all for you to enjoy!
