With company owned vineyards nestled at the top of the Monash Valley and on the fertile soils of Loveday in the Riverland, Portia Valley Wines is owned and operated by the Grigoriou family.
Chris is a third generation viticulturist and wine producer with over 35 years’ experience in the industry. After several decades working in Riverland wineries Chris started Portia Valley Wines along with his wife, Teresa, in 2006. Chris’s passion was always to establish a wine company and continue both his father’s and grandfather’s family tradition.
Chris and Teresa started Portia Valley Wines where Chris gained all his experience, in the heart of Australia’s largest wine growing region, in the Riverland of South Australia. Portia Valley has organic vineyards nestled throughout the Riverland, however Chris hand selects vineyards in South Australia’s most prestigious wine growing areas for our ‘Family Reserve’ range.
The naming of Portia Valley is in two parts, named after Chris’s mother Portia, and also the location of the first vineyard where she spent many a long day working, at the top of the Monash valley overlooking the region and township.
