TOP HONOUR FOR SERAFINO
McLaren Vale’s Steve Serafino – founder of Serafino Wines – was inducted into the Order of Australia in January as a Member of the Order (AM). The title recognises Steve’s achievement, service and contribution to the wine industry. Two years after arriving from Italy as a teenager in the 1960s, Steve planted his first vines in McLaren
Vale with his father. Today, his daughter Maria Maglieri oversees the winery, and they claim to have the largest Italian varietal portfolio
in the region.
