Stanton & Killeen Location & History
Stanton and Killeen lies in the gently rolling countryside of Victoria’s Rutherglen wine region. The estate has a rich tradition of fortified winemaking dating back to 1864 when English migrant, Timothy Lewis Stanton purchased the original farm and vineyard land. By 1875, the Stantons were well established Rutherglen vignerons. Norman Killeen joined the family wine business in 1953 and the Stanton and Killeen partnership was born. Chris Killeen became the sixth generation of Stanton and Killeen winemakers when he took the reins in 1981. The legacy of this pioneering winemaking family has helped shape the landscape of Australian wine.
