Primo Estate owns and operates a state of the art winery located on the Virginia Vineyard property. It is a custom designed facility that contains an intriguing mixture of new and old world technologies. There are numerous special features like a 50 metre drying rack area, visible from the driveway entry and used for making the JOSEPH 'La Magia' botrytis wine. At the core of the winery, suspended above head height, are five ten tonne open concrete red fermenters. These are more labour intensive but there is no doubt that the subtle aeration and warmer temperatures that they give during the fermentation phase results in wine with more soul. Another rare sight are the three large oak casks which perpetually contain wine for the JOSEPH Sparkling Red. Shiraz going back to the mid 1980s is in this mother of all base wines. – Description from Dragac

  • Primo Amore Moscato 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I'm a very inexperienced drinker so I always stay away from things I'm not sure how they'll taste. I tried this at Olive Garden with the recommendation from our waiter and now I've been on the hunt to BUY it locally. It's is PERFECT. Loved it, heaven in my mouth! Could turn me into a wino. ;) Read More
