Simao & Co - North East Victoria
Simão is the Portuguese interpretation of the name Simon.
A born and bred Rutherglen lad, Simon Killeen grew up on a vineyard and knew very early in his life that he wanted to pursue a life making wine. He considers the “North east”of Victoria as his backyard, spending many weekends camping in its hills, hiking the alps, picking berries and fruit with friends and driving through the national parks with his grandfather, just “to see what’s out there”.
After working in wineries and vineyards across Australia, France and Portugal, he returned home to Rutherglen, creating Simão 2014. The philosophy is simple: make wine from the best sites in the North East and show the world how good the wines can be! He works with specific varieties that he believes reflects a particular suitability to a region.
