Serafino Wines

Serafino’s belief is that wine should be intriguing from first look at the label to last sip from the bottle. Wine embodies the ethereal wonders of life… passion, tradition, goodness, love, laughter, life, and thankfulness. Ever the visionary back in the 1960’s, Serafino (Steve) started the famous Maglieri wine brand and sold out to Southcorp in 1998, only to purchase another winery a year later and name it Serafino. Serafino Wines includes the cult labels in Terremoto and Sharktooth as well as the Malpas, Black Label Reserve, Black Label, Bellissimo and Goose Island Ranges. These ranges cover most of the noble grape varieties as well as the new modern alternate varieties.
