After a work trip to his family's homeland of Italy in the early 1990s Fil Barreca, aged just 21, discovered his intrinsic connection to working in a vineyard and growing grapes on a highly innovative Sicilian winery. He took inspiration and passion back to Donnybrook and begun planting vines immediately establishing the winery in 1994.
With 46 hectares under vine the predominant varieties include Shiraz, cult favourite Barbera, Shiraz Malbec, Zinfandel, Sangiovese and many more.
The sparkling and fortified wines are proudly 100% estate bottled, including the Estate’s premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is produced from the Estates premium olive plantation.

Originally an orchard for stone fruit, pears and apples, the La Fattoria vineyard was established in 2012 by the Radice family with the planting of 11 Italian varieties. By nature of their native climates, Italian varieties are well suited to Australia's warm and dry grape-growing conditions, like those of the Perth Hills.
La Fattoria is home to one of WA’s widest Italian wine ranges, with varieties including Barbera, Sparkling Vermentino, Fiano, Sangiovese, Vermentino, Biancone, Sparkling Brachetto, Nebbiolo, Sparkling Pignoletto, Primitivo and Sagrantino.
In Italy, wine is typically served with food during family gatherings. With this philosophy in mind, the La Fattoria cellar door showcases its wines as wine flights, available with or without traditional antipasto, and always accompanied by a friendly chat with the winery's 'family'. 'Conversation with Italy' wine flights are $10 per person and include piccolo antipasto and tastings of five wines.
Enjoy lunch just like Nonna makes it at the estate's cosy trattoria, featuring a set menu of delectable Italian dishes designed to be shared among loved ones. The culinary experience includes a wine tasting and a rustic Italian menu created from locally-sourced, seasonal produce. Alternatively, select a range of antipasto items with La Fattoria’s 'pick your own platter' or homemade coffee and cake. Open Thursday to Sunday 11:30am to 4pm.
Experience grape-picking during the vineyard's harvest to gain an enjoyable insight into the estate's winemaking process. Join the 'La Famiglia' club online to gain access to these exclusive events.
