Deakin Estate are proud to offer wines using only the best fruit from vineyards in the Murray Darling region of Victoria. 

History

The Mildura region was transformed from an arid, scrubby, no man's land, to an agricultural oasis in the 1880's. Alfred Deakin, a former Prime Minister of Australia, encouraged California's Chaffey Brothers to bring their irrigation expertise to the vast inland valley of the Murray River in North West Victoria.

Since then the region has become one of Australia's most productive and prosperous sources of high quality produce including citrus, olives, almonds and grapes.

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.
