Bellwether Ricca Terra wines
This product is currently sold out.
Ricca Terra Farms is a revolution. The Riverland has enormous plantings of vineyards and has been the backbone of Australian wine. The social capital is one of the most valuable assets, generations of people who love to grow grapes for wine. Environmental and economic pressures have pushed many families from their livelihood and farms. There had to be a better way of approaching viticulture in this region. Ricca Terra Farms is leading the way, a Bellwether of future sustainability and prosperity albeit on a small scale. The varieties are selected for climate appropriateness and the approach is for high quality, so a natural fit for Bellwether, a surprise as I had no intentions of venturing into the Riverland but the approach and resulting fruit is remarkable so it was too intriguing not to have a go.
So I dare you to be different and surprise your friends with a textural Bianco d'Alessano, a tangy Nero d'Avola Rosé or an earthy Montepulciano.
Try a taste in a 3 pack, or one to share in a 6 pack, or help promote this revolution with a mixed dozen.
