With company owned vineyards nestled at the top of the Monash Valley and on the fertile soils of Loveday in the Riverland, Orico cooperate with Portia Valley Wines which is owned and operated by the Grigoriou family.
Orico cooperate with Portia Valley Wines which was established by Chris and Teresa Grigoriou, Chris being a third generation viticulturist and wine producer and with over 35 years’ experience in both the industry.
Chris’s passion was always to establish a wine company and continue both his father’s and grandfather’s family tradition.
Where better than in the area he gained all his experience, in the heart of Australia’s largest wine growing region, in the Riverland of South Australia.
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.
