In the 1950s, Domenic and Iolanda Pinelli immigrated from Italy for a new life in the Swan Valley of Western Australia. They had a vision of a family winery built on the tradition of their Italian heritage and the opportunities offered by the temperate climate of the Swan Valley wine region.
From the very beginning some 40 years ago, Domenic and Iolanda shared their passion and knowledge for winemaking and grape-growing with their children. The very idea of a ‘family winery’, meant that future generations would continue their vision for the winery.
And it is still a family effort today with their sons, Robert and Daniel, both becoming qualified winemakers ensuring that the Pinelli philosophy to produce exceptional quality from the vineyard to the glass continues.
