Often overlooked yet a Union Street favourite, Beechworth Nebbiolo has the quality and ageability to be at an iconic level of Australian wine. We bring you some cornerstone producers of this regional gem through Traviarti and Company Wines. Alongside the calibre and value of these Nebbiolo expressions we've also offered a handful of other wines vinified under these labels. Perfect for cellaring as well as winter drinking!

2018 TRAVIARTI ROSSO NEBBIOLO BLEND OFFER $30
 
Vintage 2018 was a ripe year bringing generosity and a little more weight to our Rosso than previous. Approximately equal parts nebbiolo and barbera with a small percentage of cabernet. Sumptuous early drinking finishing with those fine savoury tannins! - Traviarti    

2018 TRAVIARTI BEECHWORTH NEBBIOLO OFFER $68
 
After the excitement of the 2017 release we were shocked when 2018 provided a new depth of both fruit and tannin. No doubt a combination of additional vine maturity and the season. The wine is intrinsically in balance and we are confident this wine will cellar many years however a quick turn in the decanter and the ripe nature of the vintage sees this approachable already. - Traviarti

2017 COMPANY WINE BEECHWORTH NEBBIOLO OFFER $60
 
Nebbiolo sourced from Pete Graham's Domenica Vineyard high on the granitic soils of Beechworth. A serious red for serious red drinkers, Nebbiolo is often referred to as the king of wines and in our stable it only takes second place to its queen — the Chardonnay. Lot's of tannin, acid and good fruit purity showing great potential for ageing. Inspired by Italian winemaking greats, this Nebbiolo has spent 18 months in aged small format oak barriques. - Company Wine
