Description

La Violetta was established in 2008 by Andrew 'AJ' Hoadley, a well-travelled and respected winemaker who chose to settle in Denmark with his wife Hanna Reichel for its excellent winemaking conditions. Grapes are sourced from a handful of trusted growers from some of the oldest vineyards in the region, with a focus on small-scale production to ensure each wine is personally hand-crafted.  In 2010, La Violetta's first release, 2008 La Ciornia, featured in UK Critics Matthew Jukes' Top 100 and Sarah Ahmed's Top 5 Australian wines.

The name 'La Violetta' derives from an old Piedmontese song celebrating intoxication.

The wines are made with an array of ancient winemaking techniques learnt from different regions around the world and created in small batches to make interesting and complex wines. Varieties include Riesling, Gwurtztraminer Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Wines can be purchased online or at selected retailers in Australia, the UK and Singapore.
