The Ceravolo Story

The Ceravolo's came to Australia from Calabria, Southern Italy over fifty years ago from the Old World to a New World. It was no co-incidence that they came from the 35 N Parallel in Southern Italy to the 35 S Parallel in the South of Australia.

 

We have been making wine and olive oil for hundreds of years. Over generations, we have combined Old World traditions with New World expertise. Both regions have a maritime micro-climate and share similar wine making characteristics. 

Our wines are estate grown from either the Adelaide Plains or the cooler Adelaide Hills. Our home Estate is nestled amidst our cherry orchards and chestnut grove in the Adelaide Hills.

Adelaide Hills grapes were planted as early as 1839, but it was not until the early 1980's that there was a renaissance for vineyards and winemaking in this region. Grape varieties well suited to the Adelaide Hills are sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot grigio and pinot noir.

Antony, Fiona, Heather and Joe Ceravolo in Careri, Calabria, Italy where Joe was born and left at the age of 7 as a shepherd. 

Joe works non-stop on the vineyards to produce the best quality fruit across the Plains and Hills. We work with our winemakers closely to deliver balanced and elegant wines that are great by themselves or partner with food beautifully.
