Trentham Estate, the family-owned Murray Darling winery is celebrating 30 years operating its winery, restaurant and cellar door.

Founded by brothers Anthony and Patrick Murphy along with Anthony’s wife Nola, the winery stills sees its three co-founders very active in its day-to-day operations, and Patrick still has a passion for creating a product enjoyed by many.

“Being able to create something that people genuinely enjoy and that contributes to great experiences and memories is incredibly satisfying,” the director and vineyard manager said.

Over its 30 years Trentham has expanded from its first crush to a boutique, state-of-the-art feature handling some 5,000 tonnes of premium varietal fruit each vintage. Today, the company distributes domestically and globally with Trentham holding a strong position in both markets.

Today Trentham produces popular wines, while the Cellar Door and Restaurant have developed into an impressive riverside destination where the tradition of quality food, wine and customer service continues.

Reflecting on 30 years in the business, Managing Director and Chief Winemaker, Anthony, said: “The Trentham experience has been exciting, fun, hard work, satisfying and well worth the journey.”

While Trentham has won a large number of trophies and medals over its 30 years, the Murphy’s said the most memorable award was the Trophy for Shiraz at the 2008 International Wine & Spirit Competition for the 2005 Heathcote Shiraz.
