This legendary Italian variety has its origin near the town of Avola in southern Sicily.

"Over the years I have drunk many Italian Nero d’Avolas and never cease to be amazed that grapes from such a warm latitude can produce wines of such elegance and finesse, always bright and fresh with astonishing crimson luminescence, somewhere between say a Pinot Noir and a Shiraz." Garry Crittenden

This one is true to style. A pretty, floral and spicy nose with lots of red fruits. The flavours on the palate are mouth-filling, juicy and finish with eastern spices.

With each six pack of Catto purchased you will receive a booklet detailing the origins of the Catto label and a little more information about my own role in the development of Italian Varietals in Australia. 

Purchase this six pack of Catto and receive free delivery Australia wide.

If you wish to purchase Catto in a mixed pack please contact us on 03 5987 3800 or to arrange.

Essential Theatre is back with their 20th anniversary season of Shakespeare in the Vines. What better way to celebrate this enormous milestone than with a brand new production.

As You Like It brings all of Shakespeare’s best ideas together in one masterful play of love, betrayal, mischief, and foolery, and features some of the most iconic and memorable Shakespearean lines ever spoken.

Led by experienced theatre makers Amanda LaBonte & Sophie Lampel, Essential Theatre re-interpret classic texts for modern audiences delivering vibrant and engaging productions. They strip back any preconceived ideas as to how Shakespeare “should” be presented and create productions accessible and enjoyable for all. Experience has taught them how to juggle inclement and unpredictable weather, noisy cockatoos, stray dogs and most importantly how to celebrate the brilliant words of William Shakespeare.
