Delatite is sited on a picturesque rise, overlooking the vineyards, toward Mt Buller and the High Country ranges in North-east Victoria. We are a small, family run winery, established in 1968 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David.

Join us for wine tasting with spectacular views, vintners and cheese platters, produce, preserves, freshly roasted coffee and cellar-door-only wines. Located in the foothills of the Victorian Alps below Mt Buller, the Ritchie family are pleased to be able to share the landscape and vineyard experience with visitors and wine lovers alike!

Owing to its cool climate and sub-alpine location in the High Country, Delatite has a substantial European-influenced, winemaking style. Widely recognized for producing delicate white aromatics and elegant reds.

Our approach to wine making has been forged from the family’s history of working with the land in Victoria for over 170 years. We’ve been devoted to not only producing outstanding wines, but also developing sustainable vineyard practices and adopting biodynamic principles that will leave the land in a better state than when we started.

Our philosophy is to allow the vineyard and grapes to express their true characters ... rather than the fingerprints of the winemaker.

“This is uncompromising cool climate viticulture and the wines naturally reflect that.” James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion: ‘Five Red Star Winery’ 2009-2015.
