Our Riverstone wine is the product of our founder Peter Inglese’s, hard work in his desire to achieve the perfect quality of wine.
Our aim is to grow Peter's legacy and craft uncomprimised quality wine, representing more than a bottle of wine, but ambition, success and family.
The name Riverstone comes from the idea of the gold rush, as we believe our brand’s philosophy is reflective of the ambitious desire to succeed, seen through the determined men who went in search of gold amongst the riverstones, to achieve wealth for their families.
We pride ourselves in the quality of our authentic Australian grown wine, all carefully nurtured from the vines of our Coldstream vineyard in the Yarra Valley.
