Welcome to Capogreco Winery Estate.

Established in 1976 by Bruno & Elvira Capogreco, we are a family owned and operated boutique vineyard/winery in Mildura, Australia. However our Capogreco family history for viticulture and winemaking dates back six generations to approximately 1821, in a small village called Rossellina in Calabria, Italy. This is the place where Bruno learned his craft for winemaking from his family. 

Wine was made and supplied to the region, and the technique of making the best quality wines were simple. Grapes were used from the family vineyard, and the wine was made in a small cellar where it aged with grace and distinction.

Throughout the Capogreco generations, the art and knowledge of making mature, natural, traditional Italian style wines has been passed down. 

Our winemaking process consists of Italian traditional methods:

  • Once the grapes have reached the right maturity for a particular wine, they are then harvested and crushed by destemmer / crusher.
  • Fermentation is on skins using the natural wild yeast from the grapes, before being basket pressed.
  • No earth filters, fining agents or wine enhancing supplements are used in our winemaking process as we believe this strips the colour, flavour, aroma, protein and special characteristics from the wine.  Therefore our wines are Vegan Friendly.
  • Clarification of our wine is done by a racking process, barrel ageing, and pad filter before bottling.
  • The wine is bottled and sealed with natural cork closures or screw caps, depending on the style of wine. It is then monitored for a short time before being released for sale.

For over 45 years, Capogreco Winery Estate has not only taken pride in the history and integrity of winemaking, but also the attention to detail…a loyalty to the traditional art of our forefathers that we continue to uphold.
