CECCANTI KIEWA VALLEY WINES
From Falls Creek: 53km - 1hr From Mt Hotham: 91km - 1hr38min
While this family owned vineyard, winery and cellar door has the feeling of a natural Australian bush setting be prepared for a Tuscanstyle treat. Angelo and Moya Cenccanti purchased the 100-acre property in 1977 with the intention of planting cool climate grapes, in a climate with similar altitude and soil type to that found in the Chianti region in Tuscany. The classic varieties of Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Reserve and Nonno Reserve thrive in the cool Alpine climate where long cold winters, and cool summer nights, create the perfect environment for maturation of grapes with ripe characters, soft tannins and an abundance of fruity flavours. The menu ranges from antipasti through to a full banquet (if so desired) with a classic Tuscan influence. When time permits staff are happy to show guests through the winery.
