Dominique Portet

A rich history of winemaking exists in the Portet family with Dominique's father Andre – the vineyard and winery manager at Chateau Lafite-Rothschild – passing a winemaking passion to his sons. While Dominique's brother took that passion to California ­ to Clos du Val, where Dominique worked alongside him for 3 vintages – Dominique was still looking for a region to rival Bordeaux.

Dominique followed his heart to Australia and after many successful vintages with Taltarni – he began his own label, Dominique Portet in the Yarra Valley and history continues. Ben Portet, Dominique's son and tenth generation of the Portet family to move into winemaking, is now working in tandem with his father to produce the wines today.
