Stanton & Killeen
Seven generations have poured their enthusiasm, dreams and hard work into Stanton and Killeen and every wine speaks to a part of our story.
The Stanton family, originally from Suffolk in England, worked hard to establish a vineyard with many setbacks such as phylloxera, drought and the Depression. Norman Killeen married Jack Stanton’s daughter, Joan and in 1954 gave birth to 6th generation winemaker Chris Killeen. In 1968 the business name was changed to ‘Stanton and Killeen Wines’ and thus started a new phase in the history of the winery. Today the business is owned and managed by Chris Killeen’s wife Wendy and their children Simon and Natasha. Simon has studied a Bachelor of Wine Science at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga and Natasha is studying a Master of Wine Business through the University of Adelaide.
