We love the story of the triumph and tenacity of Giovanni Patritti almost as much as we love his wines!

In 1925 Giovanni Patritti set sail for the US to find his beloved sister. Perhaps she wasn’t so keen on him however, as he somehow washed up in Adelaide, Australia!

Giovanni didn’t let that get him down though. Without a word of English he made his money selling ice cream, and used his profits and work ethic to gain land for his true passion; winemaking.

Since then, his son and grandchildren continue to run the company from treasury to tank to terroir. They boast their loyalty to old school heritage, yet their bold and innovative selection represents all that is magical about new world wine.
