In 2016 Rex D’Aquino commissioned the Patrono Series to commemorate the 70th year of his family’s involvement in the wine industry of Orange.
In 1946 in a tin shed, his grandfather Carmelo D’Aquino, commenced the first winemaking operation in the area, producing six barrels of wine. Three generations later the D’Aquino family are still producing some of the finest wines from the Orange region.
