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.
