Our passion for Italian wines is driven by the delicious textures and flavours of these wonderful varieties. For us, being able to make wines from unconventional and unique varieties is a fantastic challenge.
With each vintage we discover how well-suited these new varieties are to our extreme climate, be it wet or dry, and how they retain their vitality and structure under tough conditions. Not only are they proving more suited to our climate than many French varietals, they appear to be more sustainable and economic to grow.
The fruit from each of our varieties are sourced from regions that offer the best growing conditions for that variety. The fruit is then lovingly crushed, fermented, blended and bottled at our Winery in the heart of McLaren Vale.
What we don’t believe is that it’s important to impress people with fancy wine words. We do believe a wine should support a meal and celebrate a moment.
Wine texture is important, as are flavours and the way a wine impacts on all your senses to make you stop and think about what you’re drinking. For us, as long as our wines are enjoyed – we are happy. We put a lot of effort into creating delicious wines, using traditional techniques of foot stomping, basket pressing and natural ferments.
Our family welcomes your family - come and discover your Beach Road and enjoy good food, good wine, good company.
