Simao & Co

Simon Killeen ? formerly of Stanton & Killeen ? has decided to go out on his own and launch his own wine brand. It?s a brave step but he?s taken to it like a duck to water. This is an exciting development for north-east Victorian wine and, by extension, for Australian wine. The range sources grapes from a range of interesting plots around Victoria?s north-east. Simon?s late father, Chris Killeen, was renowned as an experimenter, a champion of Portuguese varieties in Australia, and as the producer of Australia?s best and most interesting Vintage Port.
