No other group of wines have been given higher marks (at lower prices) from Wine Spectator Magazine than the Marquee® Classic Series, which is a collection of Australian wines that consumers can trust to be drinkable and approachable at value prices. Every vintage is a true “Best Buy” from 87 to 90 Points with outstanding quality!

To call our co-founder, Mark O’Connell, a wine lover would be to make a gross understatement. Mark is a collector, an advocate and even a Burgundy estate owner. Ten years ago he was doing quite a bit of business, unrelated to wine, with he crossed paths with another wine enthusiast, Keith Brien. Keith has been a winemaker for over thirty-five years.

Keith and Mark strongly agreed on one point, wine had become too intimidating. Consumers had to weed through too many labels and marketing gimmicks to find quality juice. Keith left Cleveland Estate in 2003 (after twenty-five of those years) to pursue his dream and make wine for his own label which would be sold internationally and for the American market under the Marquee label.

Marquee® has grown substantially in the past ten years. Labels have come and gone but one thing remains consistent, the quality of the wine. Keith and Mark believe that there is no substitute for well made, artisanal wine.
