About Deakin Estate
Deakin Estate wines are crafted entirely from vineyards, which lie in South Eastern Australia. Here, the mighty river weaves across the land, bringing life to the region and to our vines.
Approximately 200 000 cases per year are made and available in every state of Australia, as well as exported to most winemaking countries.
History of the Estate
The original Deakin Estate property and its wines were named in honour of that visionary, Alfred Deakin.
Purchased in 1967, Deakin Estate was planted to premium wine grapes which were sold as fruit until 1980 when a winery facility was built. By the time the Deakin Estate range was launched in 1994 some vines had achieved considerable age, whilst newer vines were being planted. Efforts have been focused on producing fruit of the highest quality and expressive wines brimming with flavour and varietal character.
The Deakin Estate winery and vineyards were sold to Duxton Group in 2020, paving a new future for the Deakin Estate and Deakin Artisan’s Blend brands.
