James Halliday 2016 Ratings Success

Thursday, August 06, 2015

Many moons ago when I was 16 and staying with a friend in Melbourne, I was invited to a dinner party where the host was apparently "a huge wine buff". I wasn't terribly interested in wine at the time, but then again, not many 16 year old girls are. So when he proceeded to quiz me about my family's winery-of which he had never heard about and behaved as if it musn't be any good as surely he would know about it- he pulled out his dog-eared James Halliday book and skimmed the pages for 'Stanton and Killeen Wines'. I stifled a smile when 'the wine buff' was taken aback by Dad's excellent scores and acclaim for his wines, especially Jack's Block Shiraz and his ports.  Continue reading...

Success on the world stage 2013

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Many devotees of Stanton and Killeen’s fortified wines will not be surprised to learn that we have won several medals and two trophies this year internationally. These stunning wines are some of the best value wines on the market considering that we have been carefully nurturing parcels of fortified wine coming from the 1960s during Fourth Generation Jack Stanton’s time.
