La Villa is a family owned 5 hectare boutique vineyard focusing on producing low yield premium fruit.
Owners of La Villa Wines Marcus and Gail’s passion for food and wine was ignited during their first trip to Italy. Since returning there 26 years later and reuniting with their friends and families, some of their greatest joys include making tortellini with Franca, making salumi with Livio and picking grapes with Marco at the Volpe winery.
The passion displayed by their artisan friends was contagious and it encouraged them to develop their very own vineyard in Tasmania, where Marcus’s family has grown apples and pears for three generations.
At La Villa, named after Emilia-Romagna where they lived, the grapes are lovingly grown, hand pruned and hand picked before being crafted into premium wine under the watchful eye of wine makers, Fran Austin and Shane Holloway.
La Villa aim produce wines that reflect the unique characteristics of our cool climate here in Tasmania.
