Stanton & Killeen Wines

The history of Stanton & Killeen spans seven generations and begins when Rutherglen was a fledging gold mining town in the 1870s. Today, mother-daughter team- Wendy and Natasha Killeen – are looking to the future by combining the best features of ‘old’ and ‘new’ with continuing the tradition of making award-winning fortifieds from one of Australia’s oldest winemaking regions, as well as a renewed focus on producing distinctive, quality table wine.

Their small team is having fun with 16 varieties, including some Portuguese cultivars perfectly suited to the Rutherglen soils and climate. By placing an emphasis on vineyard ecology and soil health, it has meant Stanton & Killeen’s fruit quality is the best it’s ever been, and each unique vintage continues to encourage the team to make the best wine they possibly can.
