Overlooking the upper reaches of the spectacular King Valley, Politini Wines is a family business focused on producing small quantities of elegant, fruit-driven cool climate wines.Our wine making philosophy revolves around letting the vineyard speak for itself and capturing the grape in the bottle.The King Valley region is blessed with beautiful landscapes, fantastic local produce and a rich history of Italian migrant culture. It is one of Australia's most important regions for cool climate and Italian varietal wines.
