Mildara pale

In the early 1880s, the two Canadian irrigation engineers George Chaffey (1848-1932) and William Benjamin Chaffey (1856-1926) received the order from the government in the Australian state of Victoria, in the area today Murray Darling To put measures to the local there drought problems to manage. As a result, large agricultural areas were created by artificial irrigation created. In 1887, today's Mildura was founded, and within just four years, 3,300 settlers moved here. The two brothers also acquired land in 1888 in the area of the former sheep station "Jamiesons Run", planted vines on 150 hectares and named their property Château Mildura . The first vintage was produced in 1891. The winery was then acquired by Mildura Winery Pty Ltd in 1910 (renamed Mild a ra Winery Pty Ltd in 1937). In 1934, Harry Ron Haselgrove (1900-1978) was hired as a consultant who had worked in the Cognac area. Later he became chairman of the company and was responsible there until 1971. Haselgrove has expanded its product range to include sherry-style wines and brandies.

Haselgrove acquired in 1956 in the area Coonawarra 12.5 hectares, which have grown to 255 hectares to date. A new winery was put into operation in 1963. A red wine in Bordeaux style ( Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot. Cabernet Franc. Shiraz ) was created in 1987 under the historical name "Jamiesons Run". Two years later, the same name was used Chardonnay released. In 1991, a merger with the winery of the wine pioneer Wolf pale (* 1934), the enterprise firmierte now as Mildara pale . Ownership included well-known wineries such as Baileys of Glenrowan, Ingoldby, Maglieri, Rothbury Estate, Saltram, St. Huberts, Yarra Ridge and Yellowglen. Finally Mildara Blass was born in 1996 by the Multi Foster's acquired. By buying the California winery Beringer was founded in 2001 by the Multi Beringer Blass Wine Estates, from the 2005 Foster's Wine Estates and finally in 2011 Treasury Wine Estates emerged.
