Pizzini Wines

Drop into this cellar door any day of the week to taste its Italian varieties — or join one of the on-site cooking classes.

This family-run winery in the King Valley is known for its Italian varieties (like prosecco, nebbiolo and sangiovese) all of which can be enjoyed in its cellar door, open daily.

Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini planted the first vines on the property in 1978, and by 1994 Pizzini Wines produced its first wine under the label. Nowadays the whole family is involved in winemaking, including Alfredo and Katrina's four adult children.

The family's Italian heritage is celebrated not only in the winemaking, but also in the onsite cooking school where you can try your hand at making gnocchi, risotto and pizza. A tavola! Cooking School runs weekly classes for up to ten people, from $155 per person.
