Meet the growers


John Cavedon

John was the first Italian to plant grapes in the King Valley in 1977. John & his wife Helen have supplied Redbank for 25 years.

John & Helen's families came from Northern Italy and were pioneers searching for new grape varieties. It comes as no surprise that John, Helen and their son Johnny have a strong connection to the wine industry.

Their story continues today as it began with the same proud Italian heritage, dedication and passion that results in the production of premium quality wine grapes from their highly regarded, King Valley vineyard.

Michael Murtagh

Michael's vineyard is situated in the North East of Victoria. Planted by hand by Michael almost 40 years ago, it is a testament to both Michael's commitment to excellency and the quality of fruit it produces. 

The whole vineyard meticulously hand-pruned to ensure optimal growth and fruit development. The low cropping techniques employed here result in vines that yield grapes of unparalleled quality, reflecting the unique terroir of the cooler side of Rutherglen.
