De Beaurepaire Wines was founded by Janet and Richard, who planted the first grapes in Rylstone in 1998. They both shared a love of great wine and a dream to develop delicious premium French-style wines. Why French-style wines you ask? With Burgundian family heritage, and a strong preference for the elegance and structure of cool-climate wines, a focus on French-style wines was the natural choice.
As the business has flourished, Janet and Richard have been delighted that their children, Amanda and Will, are now part of the team, bringing with them a wealth of business experience. This is allowing the family business to grow from one couple’s passionate endeavour into a multigenerational family affair. So when you visit us at our cellar door or at a wine and food event, say hi, as you’ll be meeting one of the family. And when you visit our beautiful hideaway, you’ll get an especially warm welcome from our wine dog, Scotch!
Our family aims to make French-style wines that are elegant, structured, food-friendly and capable of substantial bottle improvement over time. We hope you enjoy drinking them as much as we enjoy making them!
À votre santé!
The de Beaurepaire Family
