When Gianfranco and Francesca Anderle first visited Western Australia in 2000, they immediately fell in
love with the Margaret River Region. This resulted in their prompt return to Italy and the selling of their
assets, which by February 2001 allowed Gianfranco and Francesca’s dream to begin taking shape with
the purchase of a Wilyabrup property (75 Acres) in the heart of the Margaret River Region. They soon
moved to WA with their children in August 2001, with vineyard plantings starting in 2003 thru to 2005.

The vineyard is planted on the very best of classic Margaret River gravel soil, with a beautiful Northern
aspect and a state-of-the-art winery is cleverly concealed in an unassuming green shed on the property.

Gianfranco is a qualified oenologist from Conegliano (North Italy), the oldest wine school in Europe.
With his background being European, he tries to identify his wines with a slightly different style. Looking
also for his own niche in the market, he brings to Australia 22 years of winemaking experience and
imparts his way of making wine in Margaret River with his unique European influence.

He has total control of the winemaking process, by making all the wines on site in his custom built
small winery; he even bottles the wine on site. He will happily show you around during your tasting
