Nebbiolo isn’t new to Australia – but its mainstream popularity here is. Discover the elegant, seductive power of this variety as we explore labels leading the charge. Learn about nebbiolo’s slow start on local shores, the new-generation vine clones changing the game, and the winemakers harnessing its many strengths. Edinburgh Cellars manager Sam Taylor is set to host.
Taste wines from the Adelaide Hills – among them Architects of Wine and Abbeville – with Italian classics such as Benevelli and Sordo. It’s these latter iterations that typically show higher levels of tannins and acidity, with new-world examples tending softer. The variety takes its evocative name from nebbia, the Italian word for fog, which rolls in during harvest across the Piedmont region.
Whether you’re new to nebbiolo or a long-time convert, settle in at East End favourite Mothervine as we celebrate its charms.
