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 experience.
