ABOUT

We are committed to investing in Mediterranean grape varieties and discovering how best they suit our region. We are excited by their unique qualities and ability to adapt to our climate, and of course their drinkability!

Nero d’Avola was introduced to Ricca Terra Farms out of pure frustration during the millennium drought. Faced with the reality of a limited supply of irrigated water in the future, we needed a grape variety that could withstand the warm and dry climate of the Riverland region.

After extensive in-field trials, we learned that only half the irrigated water was required to grow quality Nero d’Avola grapes compared to some French varieties. Twelve years on, Nero d’Avola is without a doubt Ricca Terra Farm’s flagship grape variety.

Nero d’Avola was one of the first grape varieties planted on our vineyard. Its resilience and ability to thrive with minimum inputs such as water, makes it our ‘king of kings’.
