Kingston Estate Vineyards

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Kingston Estate Vineyards is one of Australia’s largest grape growers they own an extensive portfolio of vineyards in a diverse range of regions across South Australia and Victoria, ranging from dry grown cool climate to inland irrigated.

Kingston Mount Benson (Limestone Coast)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc

Situated at stone’s throw from Wright’s Bay, their vineyard enjoys a maritime climate to such an extent it must be protected by a network of bushes and trees. With undulating Terra Rosa soil and cooling summer sea breezes, wines from this vineyard display signature lifted aromatics and spice.

The Kingston Vineyard (Riverland)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Located directly opposite the winery, this was the first broad acre vineyard that they planted their selves. Pioneering Petit Verdot as a variety uniquely suited to the Riverland’s extended hot and dry growing season, their Kingston vineyard boasts the largest single planting of this classic variety in the Southern Hemisphere.

Kingston Paringa (Riverland)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc

Located north of the village of Paringa, this scenic vineyard is easily recognisable for its long rows of tall poplar trees which line the southern boundary. Situated high over the river Murray (which flows past less than a kilometre away), the vineyard has a good aspect and is the home to many of their single vineyard programs, including very high quality Sauvignon Blanc.

Kingston Kangara (Riverland)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Shiraz, Colombard, Pinot Noir, Viognier

Across the Murray river from the wildlife filled Murtho Forest Reserve, this is their largest vineyard and due to the rich soil is home to their most vigorous vines. It has plantings of a range of varieties including their vibrant (single vineyard) Pinot Noir, as well as a good number of aromatic whites.

Kingstone Estate Winery

They make and mature all their wine at their state of the art winery in the township of Kingston on Murray, located in the centre of the Riverland wine region of South Australia.

Kingston_Estate_Wines

The winery was built in 1985 on the corner of the family property next to their original vineyard as well as the family home.

Today the winery can be considered two wineries in one: the original winery and the modern extension.

The original winery is where they make their small batch super premium wines giving them the flexibility and control to develop parcels of wine into exciting styles that truly reflect the varieties and regions from which they come.

Kingston_Estate_Wines

State of the art tanks and winemaking equipment enhance their ability to produce commercial and larger volume bulk wines to the highest standard.

Their efficient and sophisticated winemaking operations allow them to make wine styles at all quality levels to the specific needs of their diverse global customers.

As a winery with top tier BRC compliance and a storage capacity of 104 million litres (equivalent to 140 million bottles of wine), all of their wine is made and matured on site until dispatched to market.

Kingston Estate Bulk Wine Services

Riverland

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Their winery is proudly located in the heart of the Riverland wine region – which in total supplies around 25% of all of Australia’s grapes. It is spoiled with abundant sunshine, a consistent ripening period and a reputation for full bodied wines that display intense colour along with vibrant fruit flavours. Home to many of Australia’s largest brands, they source a high proportion of their grapes from this great region.

Varietals

Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Colombard, Viognier, Petit Verdot, Traminer, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Limestone Coast

A macro region that includes the Coonawarra, Mt Benson, Wrattonbully and Padthaway wine regions. Offering ripe fruit characters in a distinct cool climate style, the delicate wines from the Limestone Coast offer regionality and vintage consistency – making the wines from this region some of their fastest growing exports.

Varietals

Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc

South Eastern Australia

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Predominantly sourced from their home region of the Riverland in South Australia, these wines are the backbone to many Australian wine ranges around the world. Displaying vibrant colour, bright and obvious fruit as well as soft tannins, they are the clear choice for everyday drinking wines, especially due to the wide range of styles and varietals available.

Kingston Estate Wines People

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Bill Moularadellis

Managing Director

After graduating from Roseworthy with a winemaking degree in 1985, Bill was intent on setting up his own winery, which he did on his parent’s Riverland vineyard property that same year.

Bill’s winemaking skills and business acumen ensured the winery enjoyed steady growth throughout the 1980s and then when Australian wine began to grow in popularity overseas, Kingston Estate was well placed to help satisfy this new demand, with Bill jumping on a plane numerous times a year to visit key export markets.

He continues to run the winery as Managing Director and oversees winemaking as Chief Winemaker.

Bill is a past executive committee member of the South Australian Wine Industry Association, past Chairman and board member of the Riverland Wine Industry Development Council, past member of the Business Advisory Board to the Reserve Bank of Australia as well as a past non-executive board member of Wine Australia.

Bill is married to Ivanka and they have three beautiful daughters, the ‘Mo Sisters.’

Nina & Steve Moularadellis

Owners

Nina (short for Constantina) and Steve (Australian for Sarantos) both emigrated from Greece to Australia as young adults, seeking a better life in the ‘lucky country.’ They met while picking fruit in the Riverland region of South Australia, where they had both chosen to settle.

When they could afford it, they bought their own block of land on which they gradually planted fruit orchards as well as a vineyard. Nina and Steve had three children, two sons and a daughter; today they have seven grand children and both are still actively working at the winery.

Ivanka Moularadellis

Commercial Trading Manager

Born and bred in the Riverland, Ivanka started her working career with the Riverland Development Corporation and then moved to Adelaide in 1990 to undertake a Bachelor of Arts degree and a role as the Events Manager for the Lord Mayor of Adelaide. This was followed by a role as Sister Cities Program Manager for the City of Adelaide.

In 1999, Ivanka moved back to the Riverland and married Bill Moularadellis. They now have three girls Lauren, Victoria and Emma who can be regularly spotted around the family winery.

It was at that time that Ivanka started working in the family wine business in various roles including domestic sales management, export wine sales and human resources. Ivanka is now actively involved in Kingston’s leadership and commercial trading team and represents the Riverland Wine Industry Development Council on the South Australian Wine Industry Association Executive Committee

Bob Wiseman

Production and Compliance Manager

Bob graduated from Uni with an Applied Science Degree and started work with Berri Coop Winery (later to be Hardys and Constellation). Technical management opportunities led to an industry switch to the fruit juice industry and the subsequent 19 years working for Berri Ltd allowed him to gain experience in a number of roles including technical, manufacturing/production management and manufacturing software implementation.

A change of lifestyle was called for in the late 90’s with children requiring a father not to be interstate 2 weeks in 4 and so Bob left Berri Ltd for some consulting with some other management acquaintances. An opportunity came up to work with Bill in December 2000 when the short notice resignation of the incumbent Production Manager left a hole to be filled with weeks before the 2001 vintage. What started as a casual opportunity to help out for a few years has turned into a real career commitment. Bob has a high level of synergy with the Kingston Estate management philosophy and team.

Bob prides himself on providing a level of calmness and management professionalism which will stand Kingston Estate in good stead for the winery growth and development plans for the future.

Meet and Explore Kingston Estate Wines at IBWS Show. The International Bulk Wine and Spirits Show (IBWSS) is an annual trade show and conference which will give wineries, importers, supermarkets, retailers, restaurants, distilleries and other buyers a premier international platform to source bulk wine and spirits and meet private label suppliers. Book now and save on exhibitor rates.
