winemaker

Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini built Pizzini Wines based on their passions and their commitment to family and Pizzini’s Italian heritage. Their winemaking dream began in 1978 when they planted the first vines on the property, then in 1994 the first wine under the Pizzini label was produced.

Today Alfredo and Katrina's four adult children Natalie, Joel, Carlo and Nicole all work in the business alongside them.

vineyard

At the beginning of the 2000s the family decided to concentrate on the production of Italian varietals. New vineyard sites were planted with the latest and best clones available in Australia including Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio, Brachetto, Nebbiolo and Prosecco. Over this time, Alfredo and Joel evaluated sites post-vintage to determine the future of the varieties on these particular sites. If the site consistently produced below standard fruit, the vines were grafted over to a variety more suited to the terrain.
