Passion The Key To The Next Generation Of Wine Lovers...
For 25 years I have been passionate about wine and in particular the winemaking process. My early days in the Yarra Valley & Mornington Peninsula resulted in a Bachelor of Horticulture & Viticulture science. More recently my passion has stretched to the granitic quartz soils of the Bendigo region. With 200 years of winemaking history the Bendigo region is a unique area for distinctive world class wines.
Currently residing and winemaking on the shores of Port Phillip Bay in Werribee Sth with Fiano, Nero d’Avola and Montepulciano with a very unique microclimate of salty sea air and similarities to where they have originated from on the Mediterranean coast.
My family came out to Australia in 1950 like so many other Italian migrant families, bringing with them the traditional methods of winemaking and vineyard management.
Passing on the passion for the next generations to come.
