My wife Anna Gallo and I grew up surrounded by Italian family members making wine from scratch, with care and passion, in small batches. Today this approach is called artisan. For us it’s called tradition – family tradition. We’re proud to be continuing it at Olivigna.
Like all winemakers, we have a deep respect for our terrior. We appreciate the interplay between vine, land, sun, wind, rain and, around here especially, fog (always present and always beautiful). For us this ever-changing dynamic of Mother Nature, here on edge of the Yarra Valley, is more than unique and complex; it is rewarding.
Feel free to try our wines at our cellar door. It’s open 12noon to 4pm Saturdays and Sundays and other times, especially if you’re coming as a group, by arrangement.
We look forward to seeing you sometime.

NV Prosecco, King Valley VIC
A fine example of an Italian favourite. Crisp and dry, there’s hints of apple and pear. With gentle bubbles, this really is a joy to drink
NV Olivigna Brut, Riverina Region
Our Brut has both citrus and floral notes. Fine bubbles add a creamy texture.
2015 Olivigna Sauvignon Blanc, Yarra Valley VIC
A crisp wine with aromas of gooseberry, herbs and cut grass.
On the palate there is passionfruit and Fuji melon. There is a subtle, pleasing acidity to the finish.
2015 Olivigna Sangiovese, Yarra Valley, VIC
Don’t be fooled by the nose of this wine.
On the palette it is flavoursome. Enjoy notes of dark cherry, blackberry, plum and vanilla.
2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, Yarra Valley VIC
A medium bodied dry red with fine grain tannins. On the nose there’s ripe plum and a subtle oak. On the palate the fruit is rich, the oak well integrated.
PLUS…. OUR ESTATE LIMONCELLO
