113 Hanwood Avenue, Hanwood NSW 2680
Established in 1997, a Boutique Wine Estate, owned and operated by the Guglielmino Family. The team work passionately in creating wines to enchant & delight through innovative wine making processes, creative marketing and superb value. They boast an impressive portfolio made up of Signor Vino, A Growers Touch & Little William.
The winery is located in a small village called Hanwood, just outside Griffith in New South Wales with the area falling into the 'Riverina' region of NSW.
The area is well known for producing heavier style red wines such as Durif, Shiraz and Cabernet. Predominant white varietals found in the area range from Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon and Pinot Grigio. The Riverina is further credited for its world class Botrytis Semillon, a grape left on the vine to ripen and inherit the Botrytis fungus.The wine is then produced into a sweet, concentrated dessert wine.
In more recent times growers, and more specifically The Winery, have begun planting various Italian Varietals due to demand in the Australian wine market and the areas suitable growing conditions. The Winery also sources certain parcels of fruit from specific growers in premium regions, mainly South Australia. Regions such as Adelaide Hills, Claire Valley, Barossa Valley and others all cultivate high-quality different styles of fruit which are used across the SignorVino range of wines.
The Winery produces Italian varietals on a boutique scale, predominantly for the domestic market in Australia and has found great success in doing so. The selection of Italian varietals is based wholly on the palette characteristics and the potential of wine sales in the market.
The Guglielmino family are passionate about displaying their Italian heritage in their selection of wine styles and believe there is a balance between adopting innovative techniques amongst the traditional methods of wine making which have been passed down through the generations.
