The Serafino story began in 1964 when Italian born Steve Serafino Maglieri arrived in Australia, as a passionate teenager full of dreams. He planted the first vines in McLaren Vale two years later, laying the foundation of a winemaking dynasty that now extends to 350 acres. Considered one of the most beautiful wine regions in Australia, Serafino Wines is located in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula, nestled between the sea and the hills.
Now overseen by daughter Maria, the wines have a reputation as being one of Australia's leading producers of Italian style red wines. Their passion for small batch hand made wines, has resulted in earning numerous international awards. Most notably, the Trophy for the most consistent Shiraz at the London International Wine Challenge after winning Gold in its class for five consecutive years.
Serafino has been awarded a 5 Red Star Winery in the 2023 Halliday Wine Companion.
