Emilia Pinot Grigio has a complex and interesting spice with ripe fruits and poached pear. The palate is dry and delicate with a subtle balance of pears, stone fruits and floral flavours. This wine would be an excellent match for vegetarian risotto, soft cheeses and warm chicken salads.
Whilst they may not have appreciated it when they were 22 year olds, Marcus and Gail Burns’ passion for food and wine was ignited during their rst trip to Italy. Since returning there 26 years later and reuniting with friends and families, some of their greatest joys include making tortellini with Franca, making salumi with Livio and picking grapes with Marco at the Volpe winery.
The passion displayed by their artisan friends was contagious and it encouraged them to develop their own vineyard in Tasmania, where Marcus’s family has grown apples and pears for three generations.
At Emilia, named after Emilia-Romagna where they lived, their grapes are lovingly grown, hand pruned and hand picked before being crafted into premium wine under the watchful eye of winemakers, Fran Austin and Shane Holloway.
Whilst their inspiration comes from years living in Italy, they will always endeavour be to produce wines that re ect the unique characteristics of the cool climate in Tasmania.
