The story behind the wine
Unlike Australian winemaking trends of producing single variety wines, in northen Italy it's all about blending varieties to produce wines with complexity and layers of flavour, with Nebbiolo.
La Bratta (the name of the nearby mountain village in northern Italy where Garry's (the owner of Arlewood) mother was born, and where the first family vines were planted, is that wine.
La Bratta Rosso and La Bratta Bianco now represent his personal selection of the best red wine and best white wine barrels from the best vintages. Made in small numbers, not made to a formula, each La Bratta wine is a reflection of his vineyard and family.
Temper Temper is a favourite local haunt, stocking 180 + shelves with fine chocolates. Also, family run and always experimenting with local ingredients seemed like the perfect fit with Arlewood's experimental and ever- changing La Bratta wines.
