When John and Amanda Fontanella discovered their idyllic farm acreage, complete with rolling hills, bordered by forest and picturesque farmland, they knew they had discovered the perfect place to realise their boutique winery dream.

The vines and grapes are lovingly nurtured and cared for by hand at Fontanella Vineyard. Yields are voluntarily kept low to keep the grapes at their highest intensity, and each harvest is done by hand to ensure the best possible selection and care of the grapes. Varieties include Prosecco, Pinot Grigio, Rosato and Pinot Nero.

A climate cool enough to produce fine Italian varietals, and Italian family heritage sealed the fate, and Fontanella Wines was born. Now you can enjoy the rewards of the Fontanella's labour of love for the land, the grapes and the wine.

Come and share their passion - and sample their fine cool climate Italian wines at their Cellar Door at Glenlyon, just 10 minutes from Daylesford.
