An unexpected yet delicious discovery… a boutique producer, just 30,000 bottles total production, and made by an Australian winemaker who fell in love with a local man whilst learning the art of winemaking.
Lisa Gilbee married Italian Gaetano Morella whom she met whilst helping with harvest during her studies. The sculpture of an owl on the label was a present from her husband at the beginning of their ‘journey’ and new life together.
Lisa is dedicated to producing “properly handmade wines” from her vineyards close to the Ionian Sea. Specialising in Primitivo (also known as Zinfandel) she’s been so successful that she regularly speaks internationally about the cultivar, and has appeared on the front-cover of Decanter magazine (May 2017).
