Our story

The goddess Meditrina

our name

What's in a name?

Our name is as rich in meaning as wine is in flavour. Meditrina pays homage to the Roman goddess associated with the art of healing, longevity, and wine itself.

In ancient times, wine was not only a symbol of celebration but also a cherished elixir, believed to possess medicinal properties that fostered health and well-being.

It is this intertwining of heritage and healing that inspired Meditrina Beverages, calling on both time-honoured traditions of viniculture and the restorative joys found in a glass of wine.

In choosing Meditrina as our name, we made a commitment to create wines that do more than just please the palate;

they enrich the soul, mend the spirit, and invite a toast to life's most precious moments.

Our story interweaves deep roots of heritage with a pioneering spirit of innovation.

At the heart of this journey is a story of transformation from the cherished legacy of one of Australia’s great wine estates to the vibrant dawn of Meditrina Beverages, adding a new chapter of legacy and dedication to the Australian wine industry.

Meditrina Beverages Heritage

A FAMILY RICH IN AUSTRALIAN WINE HISTORY

The path to Meditrina Beverages is rich with the history of four generations of values and traditions.

Synonymous with Warburn Estate, and originating from Italy in 1952, the Sergi family’s journey in the Australian wine industry began in the fertile soils of the Riverina, where their commitment and passion for winemaking, coupled with a relentless pursuit of quality, has become the cornerstone upon which this legacy is built.

Sergi Family

Beginning with Giuseppe and Maria Sergi and continuing with their son Antonio, the family founded Warburn Estate (Riverina Wines) in 1968. Through dedication to quality winemaking, they began to cement Warburn Estate’s reputation as a producer of quality wines.

The estate grew under the leadership of successive generations of the Sergi family, expanding its capabilities and enhancing its winemaking techniques to over-deliver on the wines they produced.

Warburn Estate’s journey to becoming the eighth-largest winery in Australia epitomises a fervent dedication to quality winemaking and a keen understanding of the Australian palate. The Sergi family’s commitment bore fruit, as Warburn Estate’s wines became celebrated across the country and beyond, a true sign of hard work, innovation, and the lush Riverina region.

The acquisition of Warburn Estate by Meditrina Beverages marked a pivotal moment for the winery, signalling a rejuvenation underpinned by respect for its legacy and a vision for its future. The Sergi family’s decision to pass the baton was not taken lightly; it was a strategic move to preserve the winery’s heritage while embracing change.

Meditrina Beverages, led by our Director, Tony Taliano, promises to uphold the Estate’s storied tradition, injecting a fresh perspective focused on sustainability, community engagement, and the craft of creating wines that continue to tell the story of their origin.

Sergi Family Generations

Over their 55-year guardianship the Sergi family scaled the winery to manage more than 1,000 hectares of vineyard, with a crushing capacity of 40,000 tonnes and tank storage for 35 million litres of wine.

OUR STORY

The Meditrina family

We cherish the concept of family in all its forms.

From the bonds we share with our loved ones to the broader connections we nurture within our winery, the community and the industry at large.

Our journey to rejuvenate the legacy of Warburn Estate has been driven by the personal mission of our Director, Tony Taliano, and deeply influenced by his daughters and a future for them. This mirrors our broader belief that the wine industry is an extension of family, where dedication and hard work are devoted to nurturing future generations.

We’re not just a company.

We believe in the importance of connections and the collective well-being of all whom we consider family.

OUR DIRECTOR

Starting in 1998 at Warburn Estate as a winemaking assistant, he quickly showcased his talent and passion, advancing through various roles to significantly impact wine production and export sales.

His entrepreneurial spirit led him to venture beyond wine, founding The Real Juice Co. in 2005, further broadening his expertise in the Australian beverage industry.

Now at the helm of Meditrina Beverages, he combines his extensive experience with a visionary approach, revitalising the winery’s legacy with a focus on sustainability, quality, and the celebration of family and community through wine.
