Description

<p>The rolling hills of Piemonte and the flat plains of Victoria's Goulburn Valley are worlds apart. However the classic tradition of wine making has transferred flawlessly from one hemisphere to the other.</p>
<p>When Carlo Monichino migrated from the Asti region in Northern Italy he brought his winemaking skills with him and in 1962, together with his wife Margaret, planted a vineyard in Katunga.</p>
<p>The rich soil and excellent climatic conditions make this region ideal for grape growing. In fact vines were first planted in the area in the 1880's, making it one of the oldest grape growing regions in Australia.</p>
<p>Monichinos is a true family concern, with Carlo, his son Terry, and daughter Anna all involved. Terry, after studying wine science in Australia and working in the industry overseas, has taken over from Carlo as head winemaker, while Anna manages administration, including functions, and the cellar door. </p>
<p>Visitors are welcome and the cellar door is open 7 days a week, Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, and Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm. Call in for a chat over a large range of award winning wines for tasting. Monichino's friendly staff will help you with your wine selection and provide you with information on food and wine matches. Take the time to Relax and enjoy a regional cheese platter with a glass of wine in the well laid out picnic grounds overlooking the vineyard. Cheese Platters, Muffins & Hot drinks available every day.</p>
