Galli Estate was the vision of Tuscan born Lorenzo Galli who came to Australia in the 1950’s. It was moving full circle for Lorenzo, whose family had made wine in Italy for generations. Two vineyard sites were carefully selected, in the Heathcote and Sunbury wine regions of Victoria. Each was planted with grape varieties that ideally suited their individual soils and climate. The rich red volcanic soils of Sunbury and the famous Cambrian soils of Heathcote were fundamental to Lorenzo’s dream. They are the key to wines that honestly reflect their origins and bring pleasure to those who share them. Heathcote In 2001 Lorenzo and his wife Pamela developed their 110 hectare Heathcote vineyard known as Camelback after the nearby Camel Ranges. The Camelback vineyard features Shiraz, a variety now recognised as producing exceptional wines in Heathcote, along with smaller plantings of two other “Rhone” varieties; Viognier and Grenache. In keeping with Lorenzo’s innovative nature, the balance is planted with less common grapes such as Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Nebbiolo, which all show exciting potential. The Camelback vineyard has a cellar door facility which is open by appointment. Sunbury Established in 1997 the Galli Estate Winery occupies 50 hectares just 40 minutes northwest of Melbourne CBD. Along with the vineyard, there is a state of the art winery, cellar door and restaurant. Grapes such as Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc grow beautifully here, along with characterful Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Further development is continuing with plantings of some exciting new Italian varietals. Read less
