Case study: Rebello Wines

Born in Victoria's beautiful Sunny Ridge on the Mornington Peninsula, multi-award winner Rebello Wines has fast become a world hit quenching the global palate of an increasingly discerning market.

Makers and innovators of Australia's first boutique wine that uses 100 per cent Victorian fruit, co-founder Ruth Gallace and husband Matt have taken the family's traditional wine-making methods to the next level by creating a contemporary range of wines, liqueurs and ciders.

With the support of Global Victoria, Rebello Wines was able to fast-track global export opportunities for their top-selling beverage Cheeky Rascal Cider.

Since then, Ruth and Matt have continued to innovate and in 2015, launched their new product – Matilda's Australian frozen fruit. Once again, they sought assistance from Global Victoria who provided practical exporting advice and introduced them to key trading partners in the Asian market.
