Shortest Lunch – Winery Profile – Seville Hill – by Denise McCann
The D’Aloisio family has been involved in the agricultural heritage of the Yarra Valley since the late 1960’s: from growing strawberries in the Wandin area to managing orchards of cherries, peaches, nectarine, plums and apples and finally turning to vineyards in 1991.
“We’re now into the seventeenth year of this festival and we have worked hard to keep a highly-personal and casual atmosphere to the Shortest Lunch, giving wine lovers the chance to get up close to our working wineries and to understand the passion behind what we do” says John.
From initial vintages that focused on elegant, fruit driven reds, recent years has seen the introduction of whites, dessert styles and Sparkling Wines. Not afraid to stretch the palette, John has a few Italian varieties such as Sangiovese and Barbera for good measure and the site has been producing beautiful premium wines from one of the most elevated and cooler properties in Seville and the Yarra Valley.
John says the Shortest Lunch is a great way to meet the people behind the wines and explore some of the lesser-known winery pockets of the Yarra Valley.
“Strawberries to plums to Barbera…now there’s a journey worthy of any lunch!”
