"For a winery only established in 1999 and dedicated to hand-crafted artisanal wines, Mitolo has consistently been a revelation in my tastings. Thanks to owner Frank Mitolo and his brilliant winemaker Ben Glaetzer, the quality has been truly splendid.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, November 2005
Italian family roots are the inspiration behind Frank Mitolo’s interest and passion for both good food and great wine. He founded Mitolo Wines in 1999 with the dream of producing wines of purity, individuality, elegance and power, and together with the enthusiasm and knowledge of his friend and partner Ben Glaetzer (an award winning winemaker), alongside an uncompromising commitment to quality, they have created one of Australia’s most awarded wineries receiving much international recognition and acclaim.
With Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon fruit sourced from both the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley Frank and Ben continue to produce an impressive and consistently high-scoring range of single-vineyard red wines, all the while striving to top their already impressive achievements.
