BackVintage is a brand you can trust

BackVintage is passionate about making good quality wines at a value for money price.
Established in May 2003, BackVintage is now more than 16 years old.
We buy grapes, manage the fermentation and subsequent maturation. We also blend bulk wine sourced from some of the best winemakers throughout Australia and overseas. We bottle all our bespoke wines for sale direct to the consumer via the internet.

Nick Bullied

What is a Master of Wine?

Mike Farmilo

But let's not forget our winemaker...

Our winemaker is Mike Farmilo, former Group Red winemaker for Penfolds/Southcorp. With over 40 years of winemaking experience, he has made Penfolds Grange, Magill Estate, Bin 389, St Henri - the list goes on...he has even won two Jimmy Watson trophies.

The wine selection process

Like many other wineries, we source our wines from multiple vineyards. We specify the blend and closely supervise the preparation and bottling of all our BackVintage wines.
Each wine the BackVintage team makes must meet the following criteria:

True to type: Each wine must show the typical characteristics of the variety and region from which the wine is made.

Well balanced: All the elements of the wine must be in harmony. We look at the acidity, alcohol, tannins and sweetness (if present).

Good length of flavour: We look for wines where the flavours persist in the mouth for a long time.

Complexity: It must have numerous characters and nuances to ensure that each time you open a bottle you will find it rewarding.
