Culmina Family Estate Winery is the result of a lifetime of experience in the wine industry for our founders, Don and Elaine Triggs. Having worked in the industry for a combined 40+ years, Don and Elaine began in 2007 with a simple goal: to make the highest quality wines possible from their own family estate. Channelling their lifelong passion and resources into developing Culmina’s Golden Mile Bench vineyard site – Culmina Family Estate Winery represents their commitment to excellence.

Our winery and vineyards are located on three spectacular adjoining benches, scouted for its rich vineyard potential and developed from virgin land. Visitors and guests are invited to experience Culmina’s carefully crafted wines and learn about our unique approach to viticulture and winemaking. The warm, rocky and mineral rich terroir of our Arise Bench vineyard is the ideal site for Bordeaux red varieties and is the source for our flagship wine Hypothesis. Structured, intense and deep in colour, Hypothesis represents the culmination of our efforts to create icon quality wine.

As part of Culmina’s commitment to excellence, Winemaker Jean-Marc Enixon also manages the vineyard with the utmost care. Certified Salmon-safe and undergoing the process of gaining organic certification, we believe that creating iconic wines begins with being good stewards of our special terroir.
