The origin of the Australian and now one of the world's largest wine multinationals lies in the foundation of some historically important wineries. That was above all Lindeman's 1843 and Penfolds 1844 in Australia, as well Beringer 1876 in Napa Valley, California (see both). For the more recent period, the German-born oenologist must also Wolfgang Blass (* 1934). This migrated to Australian in 1961 Barossa Valley and started in 1966 with the Wolf Blass Winery independent. As a result, he built an empire. In 1986 he acquired 50% of the Australian Bottling Company including sparkling wine production. By association with the Mildara group in the area Coonawarra the company was founded in 1991 Mildara pale with a dozen Australian wineries and wineries.
In 1996, this company became the Australian brewery giant Foster's who also took over the California group in 2000 Beringer Vineyards bought. Many California wineries have now been added. This gave rise to the Beringer Blass Wine Estates group in 2001, and in 2005 through the purchase of the multinationals South Corp was renamed Foster's Wine Estates . After bad business results, Foster's CEO Trevor O'Hoy resigned in 2008. In 2010 the shareholders resolved to separate the beer and wine business.
