Have you noticed there seems to be more and more Italian wine styles around these days… think Prosecco and Barbera.

Italian varietals have become highly sought-after in Australia, thanks to innovative winemakers and our eagerness as consumers to try new wines.

5 Reasons to love Italian varietals

Saddler's Creek Cellar Door

Drinkability

Italian varietals are loved for their sheer delight to be poured and sipped any day of the week without lacking quality or affordability.

Food Friendly

They pack plenty of flavour with good acidity and generous fruit, making them an ideal match for most cuisines.

Wine Cellar

Approachability

While many Italian varietals are capable of long-term cellaring, many styles are crafted to be enjoyed now; young, fresh and bright.

Flavoursome

Italian food is adored for its freshness and flavour. Italian varietals are no different ranging from light to full-bodied styles.

Sustainability

As the climate changes, many winemakers are seeking alternate varietals that grow well in Australia, which is why Italian varietals are proving successful here.
