Otto and Elena Dal Zotto emigrated from Valdobbiadene in north-east Italy in 1967, settling down in the King Valley, Victoria. Here in the foothills of the Victorian Alps, they originally grew tobacco before turning to vines in 1987.
Starting the early 1990s, Otto introduced traditional Italian grapes like Barbera, Sangiovese, Arneis and Garganega. Most notably they were the first to plant Prosecco in Australia and remain one of the country's most innovative and celebrated producers of the variety and its sparkling wines.
Now their son Michael is winemaker, and Christian is in charge of marketing. Sempre la famiglia.
