As a child, Salvatore Politini watched his father at work in a Sicilian winery. Now, some 60 years later, Salvatore’s Sicily meets the King Valley in Politini’s hand-crafted, cool-climate wines.
Located in Cheshunt, North-east Victoria, Politini Wines is a family-owned boutique winery. Specialising in estate-grown Italian varieties, you can experience and sample premium-quality wines including the unique Sicilian heritage Grecanico and Nero d’Avola at the cellar door.
We also offer Sicilian cooking experiences and accommodation to provide the perfect wine and food lover’s experience.
Ciao! We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.
With the current isolation rules in place we are getting back to basics and have been busy making traditional salsicce and tomato passata for the family, making quince paste and preserving fruits, tending to the gardens, vineyard and preparing for when things return to “normal”.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to the King Valley sometime soon!
Due to the devastating January fires our harvest was impacted. The minimal fruit that was harvested was exceptional. We’re looking forward to our small batch 2020 vintage of Prosecco, Nero d’Avola Rosato, and keen to unveil and share a sweet style Vermentino that was hand picked earlier this month. The vineyard is certainly looking pretty with the colours of autumn as the season changes.
Stay safe and keep well.
The Politini Family
