The history of the Serisier Family

grappe-en-hauteur

The story begins with Jean Emile Serisier a Bordelais who in 1839 arrived in Australia , establishing a vineyard in Dubbo in the English colony of New South Wales . We are 130 years later , in 2005, when Richard Serisier and his family bought Château Cadillac which included vineyards leased . The first vintage as producer of Bordeaux began after taking over the vineyard in 2011 and produced the first wine in 2012 .

The Eumalga Vineyard. Mai 8, 1876 [From the Sydney Mail]

As the name '"Eumalga" and Mr. Serisier's wines have recently been the subject of remark in the papers, and as the wines have been exhibited and (young as they are) favourably commented upon at both the Sydney and Melbourne Exhibitions, an account of the progress and present state of the Eumalga Vineyard may be of interest to persons connected with the wine trade, and to colonists generally. Eumalga is situated upon the eastern slope and at the end of a range of low hills abutting...

TERRIFIC HAILSTORM AND HURRICANE IN THE DUBBO DISTRICT.

(A LETTER FROM M. JEAN EMILE SERISIER) RESPECTING the storm which recently passed over the Dubbo district, and the effect of which the Dubbo Dispatch described "as if a destroying angel had passed along blighting and tearing up everything in its course”. The following extract from a letter, from Mr. J. E. Serisier, J.P. of Eumalga, will convey some idea of its terrific character: "Saturday morning, Yesterday, at about 3 p.m. we were visited by a hailstorm, which threatened to carry us all from the face of...

Wellington January 16, 1875

(FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) I have much pleasure in stating that a splendid rain fell in this district last week, though it was light in some places. In the neighbourhood of Nowra, heavy rain fell on Monday afternoon last, and continued for five hours. The benefit to the corn and grass is almost incalculable. We have since had light showers and threatening appearance, but no rain worth mentioning. I have not yet heard how far the rain extended. I am sorry to hear that a few days...

SECOND YEAR VINTAGE

THE MAITLAND MERCURY (NSW: 1843-1893) DUBBO. We have had a fine rain. It commenced raining on Monday, 23rd March, and rained constantly, up to Wednesday morning. Everything is looking well, plenty grass and water. Mr. Serisier finished his vintage last week: he has been very fortunate with it, fine weather having prevailed during the last five weeks. He has made between 10,000 and 11,000 gallons of wine for his second year's vintage, his vines being only five years old. He has twenty-four acres in bearing, and thirty...

A TOUR TO THE NORTH-WESTERN INTERIOR: WELLINGTON TO DUBBO, August 11, 1874

(BY THE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT TO THE TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL) FROM Wellington to Dubbo the distance is 32 miles by the old, and 36 miles by the new road. We left Wellington late in the afternoon, and after passing over the bridge proceeded through some pleasant country for several miles. Two or three hostelries were passed during the first hour's drive, and the Macquarie River was occasionally discerned to our left. About dark we met the mail coach from Dubbo, and found that we still had four miles to go to the...

POVERTY AND OYSTERS GO TOGETHER. March 3, 1873

"Poverty and oysters go together," says Sam Weller, and the truth of his maxim has been confirmed in Dubbo during the last four weeks, for though business has been unusually, dull, amusement has been unusually brisk. We have had the Bellrlngers, the Opera Company (Miss Alice May's), the Amateur Dramatic, Penny Headings, Election of Mayor and Aldermen, Hospital Committee, Mechanic's Institute Committee, and other sources of amusement. We are also promised a race meeting and an agricultural show, at which it is intended to have...
