Autumn Quinta Quarterly

Thursday, March 02, 2017

We are now into Week Four of vintage and have picked Chardonnay, Muscat (for Moscato and Sparkling Muscat Blanc) and Tinta Roriz. It’s an exciting time, and an event that culminates a year’s worth of decisions and hard work in the vineyard and winery. How much to make, yield and cropping levels, the best pruning method, which oak to buy, and what style we’re aiming for, are all questions that pop up regularly.  Continue reading...

Taking time to enjoy the good life

Wednesday, February 01, 2017

This week we said goodbye to Ros, who has been with Stanton & Killeen for over 23 years. It was with great sadness when Ros walked through the S&K gates for the last time, however, her new adventure of taking time to enjoy the good life, travel and grandparent duties to six young ones will certainly keep Ros busy.  Continue reading...

Two New Fortifieds for Your Christmas Table

Wednesday, December 07, 2016

Summer Quinta Quarterly

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

For the second year in a row, we’ve been shortlisted for the Australian Wine Producer of the Year Trophy at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. To be recognised for consistent quality is a great way to finish 2016, and a what a year it’s been. The weather has been superb and if it stays relatively dry and mild, the 2017 vintage will be another standout (my fingers are crossed as I’ve put my hand up again to be the cellar hand). Continue reading...
