Pizzini Wines is a family-owned winery specialising in the production of Italian wine varieties such as Pinot Grigio, Arneis, Prosecco, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The Italian spirit is evident as soon as visitors enter the warm atmosphere of Pizzini's cellar door, located alongside the winery in original tobacco drying kilns, the iconic architecture of the region.
Pizzini Wines was founded by Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini who planted the first vines in 1978, and in 1994 the first wine under the Pizzini label was produced. Pizzini is built on a foundation of passion, commitment to family and the Pizzini's Italian heritage. Their four adult children, Natalie, Joel, Carlo and Nicole all work in the business.
The A tavola! Cooking School, run by Katrina Pizzini, offers a range of cooking classes throughout the year and the Pizzini family regularly host exciting food and wine events at the cellar door and around Australia.
The family also operates vineyard accommodation on the property and owns and manages the local Mountain View Hotel in Whitfield.
Victoria’s stunning King Valley is located at the foothills of the Alpine National Park, approximately 3 hours North East of Melbourne.
