During the wine making process Mitolo enjoy a 'hands-off' approach, which we are certain doesnt follow through to its customer base when purchasing this complex and fruity wine!


A sterling red rich with a dark fruit profile of blackberries and black olives, with gentle hints of white pepper spice. The palate is awash with juicy flavours of cranberry and raspberry, before hints of chocolate and soft tannins lead to a savoury, silky finish.


The Mitolo family arrived in Australia in the 1950's and they brought their viticulturist ancestry and an ethos belonging to the Abruzzo region - strong and gentle. The family worked hard to become successful market gardeners while staying true to their origins where food and wine, family and friends, laughter and celebration were an integral part of life. After years of working in his family’s potato business, Frank Mitolo started making wine for family and friends. In 1999, after a legendary five hour discussion with winemaker Ben Glaetzer, the pair fashioned a dream of making the ultimate expression of McLaren Vale’s rich provenance of soils. They jotted a six word business plan on the back of a napkin: individuality, integrity, quality, purity, elegance and power. The first Mitolo wine, the 2000 G.A.M. Shiraz was named after Frank’s children Gemma, Alex and Marco. Since then Mitolo have added another 10 wines to the range each with its own distinct personality and story.


The winery works closely with its growers, the Loprestis. The Loprestis, also Italian immigrants and old friends of the Mitolos, have an affinity with their land, producing fruit of the highest quality. The fruit is the essence of Mitolo, with a depth of flavour garnered from heavy clay soils. In the winery, Ben takes a ‘hands-off’ approach, fermenting cool to retain purity, and using a range of barrel coopers to generate complexity yet respect and enhance the fruit.


The Mitolo Italian heritage runs strongly through the range using the Italian varietals and techniques. At the heart of the winery, in the wine style and in the people, is the motto that the Mitolos brought from Abruzzo - strong and gentle.
