Be the first to taste Primo Estate's brand new Italian wines, two exciting additions to our Primo & Co range made by Primo Estate owner and winemaker Joe Grilli in his ancestral homeland of Italy.

Join Primo Estate for a relaxed long table lunch bringing an authentic taste of Italy to the heart of McLaren Vale as we pour the first ever vintage of our Primo & Co Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi, a textured and vibrant white wine from the Le Marche region on the Adriatic coast where Joe's parents Primo and Santina Grilli were born. The deliciously fresh and delicate new 2016 vintage of the Primo & Co The Venetian Garganega will also be poured for the very first time, perfectly paired with a special created menu of Italian dishes by Rob Paglia of La Dolce Vita Catering and Events. 

You will also be the first to taste the first ever release of our Primo & Co Montepulciano Sangiovese. Joe's parents were born near the medieval city of Ascoli Piceno, an area is famous for juicy, easly drinking style red blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese. Joe had always wanted to try his hand at these traditional wines in his father's homeland, to pour them for you in McLaren Vale, alongside a selection of our Australian wines, is a dream come true.
