Happy festive season and to new beginnings!

We bounce into 2021 with renewed enthusiasm and energy to continue our journey of connecting wonderful food and wine through our artisan producers from both our Australian and Italian producers.

Introducing Laura...

We’re excited to announce that Laura Bolcato has joined us! Our Melbourne area sales manager brings with her excellent knowledge of wine making and vitilculture coupled along with her beautiful demeanor and sales experience, here she is; 

My passion for wine comes from my family heritage. Born in Veneto, in a little town near Vicenza, I made wine and grappa with my nonno Nico since when I was a bambina, and this skill was further enhanced through my studies in Viticulture and Oenology in Conegliano Valdobbiadene. After graduating in Winemaking in Italy I consolidated my passion for wine sales in Australia where I have managed sales for 6 years in Victoria. Moved to Melbourne almost 8 years ago, I now call Australia home.
My enthusiasm, devotion and experience within the wine industry and hospitality, in Australia and overseas, made me become a proactive and commercially focused sales manager. 

I love the history of grape growers, wineries and winemakers all over the world with a special space in my heart for Italian wine. It is an honour for me to learn and share their stories, traditions and passion.
I deeply understand the entire lifecycle of grape growing, winemaking processes and selling wine is second nature.
I adore matching good food with the perfect wine so that my mission is to spread and share my wine passion with everyone.

I look forward to meeting you all. You can reach me on 0481 364 203 or

Our Newcomers

We have added two new producers from both Australia and Italy; from the Barossa Valley, Tamar Valley, Valtellina and Barbaresco! Hand crafted and genuine Estate grown producers they will compliment our growing range of producers. 

Look out for our introductions & offers as we launch our new ranges.
To begin with, we'd like to introduce
The Ridge North Lilydale from Tamar Valley.

This high-altitude, cool-climate Tasmanian vineyard produces a range of award-winning premium wines.

Harry Rigney and Susan Denny's boutique north-facing site is uniquely positioned, creating an extraordinary terroir. Protected by the foothills of Mount Arthur, the vineyard is kept frost-free, but treated to cool nights and warmer days.

The Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania awarded their property the 2017 Best Small Vineyard and the runner up Vineyard of The Year in 2017. 
Just recently, they won:
  • 94 points The Real Review Huon Hooke for the NV Sparkling Rose
  • 90 points by James Halliday for the Chardonnay
  • Gold at the Royal Tasmanian Wine Show and 94 points by James Halliday for the Pinot Noir

NV Sparkling Rosé

The Real Review Huon Hooke 94 Points:

"Light to very light salmon-pink hue. The bouquet is faintly herbal with some celery-like notes, the palate soft and round, finely-textured and intense, the flavours focused and fine, taut and long and very appealing. There’s a tinge of honey. It’s complex, multi-faceted, and entertaining. There’s a hint of liqueur sweetness cleverly counterpointed by fresh acidity, the whole thing transmitting serious energy. A top wine."

2019 Chardonnay

Halliday 90pts Silver:

"A fresh, lively mix of stone fruit and citrussy acidity. Unoaked because Harry Rigney believed it would be too much for the elegant fruit of the wine – I agree" - James Halliday

LUC $27.95 - Tasting notes
2018 Pinot Noir

Royal Hobart Wine Show, Gold.
Halliday 94pts Gold:

"This is very well made. It is deeply coloured, supple, with predominantly red fruits, cherries and pomegranate all contributing to a palate that is a reprise of the bouquet" - James Halliday

LUC $29.02 - Tasting notes
