Sarantos and Constantina Moularadellis developed a small vineyard and founded Kingston Estate during the 1960s and 1970s, they brought the food-and-wine-loving traditions of their sun drenched Greek homeland to the equally sun-drenched Riverland district of South Australia.
Their son Bill, a graduate winemaker from Adelaide's renowned Roseworthy College, took over the reins of Kingston Estate in 1986 and has transformed it from a small, "cottage industry" vineyard and winery into one of the Australian wine industry's major players.
Though not technically a “small winemaker”, Kingston Estate is still a family business, but instead of crushing just 60 tonnes of grapes each year Kingston Estate has the capacity to handle 20,000 tonnes and is a significant exporter to European, North American and Asian markets as well as marketing several highly regarded brands on the domestic market.
Wine is a major part of Bill's life and to make the best wine possible he has always held true to the belief that any wine's potential quality is determined in the vineyard.
