It’s full steam ahead for De Bortoli Wines Bilbul who have adapted to the current climate by offering a range of wonderful experiences showcasing the Griffith region.
De Bortoli Wines Bilbul is home to the world-renowned and award-winning dessert wine, De Bortoli Noble One Botrytis Semillon. This wine was first created in 1982 and is one of the most successful and internationally award-winning wines ever produced in Australia.
The Bilbul team is offering a Noble One Experience at the De Bortoli Wines Cellar Door, where visitors try three superb vintages of the Noble One followed by the unique Black Noble, paired with a selection of delicious cheeses.
In addition to this, the winery is hosting garden tours of Emeri De Bortoli’s beautiful garden followed by a wine tasting experience. These tours take place every Saturday morning at 10am, with bookings essential as they are in high demand.
Griffith City Council’s Tourism Manager, Mirella Guidolin said, “Griffith is so fortunate to have these offerings as we are not able to proceed with our usual open gardens for Griffith Spring Fest this year. The garden tours are a great chance to explore the 14 acres of incredible landscape right next to the winery at the most beautiful time of year.”
Margot De Bortoli said, “Emeri has spent over 15 years through droughts and floods and everything in between transforming a 14 acre plot of dirt into a beautifully landscaped garden. The time has come to share this incredible garden experience to the public accompanied with our wonderful tasting and platter experiences.”
On the last Sunday of each month, the De Bortoli Wines team is also offering ‘Bubbles & Brunch’ in the sunny alfresco area. Upon arrival, guests will receive a Prosecco Piccolo and then be spoilt for choice with an assortment of delicious breakfast treats.
“Visitors and locals alike are looking for these new experiences,” said Ms Guidolin.
“These kind of offerings accompanied by quality wines are a real drawcard for visitors wanting to explore the Griffith region.”
