De Bortoli adds Yarra Valley vineyard to portfolio
One of the country’s biggest privately owned winemakers De Bortoli has bought the Lusatia Park vineyard at Woori Yallock in the Yarra Valley from wine industry veteran Stephen Shelmerdine. The 18-hectare premium mature vineyard will be handed over to De Bortoli after the 2016 harvest. The De Bortoli family declined to reveal the price they paid. Lusatia Park was acquired by the Shelmerdine family for $300,000 in 1989.
