La Fattoria

Sparkling Vermentino 2018

Vermentino is a white wine variety that maintains low natural sugar levels and excellent natural acidity even in the warmer weather of the Perth Hills – perfect for a sparkling white wine.

Sparkling Pignoletto 2017

Pignoletto is a white wine grape, that is a very adaptable, rather rustic grape that can produce good wines in the hills of Emilia-Romagna. The name probably comes from the Italian word pignaor meaning pinecone because of the compact pinecone shape of its bunches. Pignoletto can show wonderful white floral aromas, ripe apple-y fruit, and crisp acidity. This acidity makes it perfect for sparkling wines.

Where: 211 Merrivale Road Pickering Brook

When: Thursday – Sunday 11 AM – 4:30 PM

*La Fattoria will be closed from Tuesday 24 December - Thursday 16 January
