RICHLAND

Our story began three generations ago with a vision from my grandparents; Francesco & Elisabetta Calabria in 1945.

In search for a better life, my great grandfather, Domenico, and grandfather Francesco boarded a ship named ‘Romello’ and set sail for Australia in search for a better life. They settled in the Riverina region and found work as farm hands. Once enough money was saved Francesco wrote to his wife to join him in the land he often referred to as the Richland.

My grandparent’s strong Italian family values are alive in the Calabria Family wine products, and my brothers and I are committed to producing outstanding wines and continuing traditions which my grandparents started over 65 years ago.

Richland series is devoted to the founders of Calabria Family Wines; Francesco and Elizabeth Calabria, pioneers of the rich land of the Riverina – now a wine region with unlimited potential. Within the Richland series we strive to capture the essence of the variety at an affordable price. The series includes traditional varieties and also wines made from interesting, newer varieties to Australia.
