The Portet family holds possibly an unmatched record in the Australian wine industry. Dominique is the ninth generation in his family to be committed to winemaking, yet he is the first to establish a winery and label bearing the family name. The son of André Portet, régisseur (vineyard & winery manager) of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac, Dominique’s training began at one of the world’s most illustrious red wine properties. He was uniquely qualified at the Montpellier University of Oenology and during a compulsory one year military service was the legions wine purchasing adviser. With each French soldier receiving his daily wine ration, the army’s morale was at stake. Further enhancing his qualifications, Dominique spent vintages in the Médoc, the Rhone Valley, Provence and with world Champagne giant Moët et Chandon. Dominique was inclined to join his brother Bernard at his winery Clos du Val in the Napa Valley of California where he would spend three vintages, and at the same time commencing a search to find vineyards to rival that of his native Bordeaux. Since 1976, as a pioneer of the renaissance of the Victorian Industry, Australia, he was steadfast in his vision to initiate the highly regarded wines, that he made at Taltarni and Clover Hill.
