La Cantina Wines from the King Valley develop a following in Sydney
I recently discovered a great range of Preservative Free wines in Victorias King valley
From my personal experience, to wit,.. my recent Tasting in situ in the stunning King Valley,…I can tell you that La Cantina ,..do some great Preservative Free wines starting with a really good Pinot Grigio,..right through to their famous Dry Red blend and the Italian varietals that you will find below.Just in the last few days I tried their silky smooth and nicely perfumed La Cantina Nebbiolo 2019 ,..with mature rustic flavours that you wouldn’t generally find outside of Italy!
Their wines are beautiful, different to many modern styles but delicious! The Corsini family has a passion for making traditional, no added preservative and vegan-friendly wines.
La Cantina King Valley is a small family owned winery situated 42kms south of Wangaratta in the King Valley. Here, the Corsini Family, make wines using methods passed down through the generations. Our wines are made using estate grown fruit following traditional Tuscan processes retaining the full characteristics of each grape variety. All of their wines have no preservatives added and are vegan friendly.
This method brings out the full characteristics of each wine, so you can enjoy the fresh, fragrant flavours of the King Valley. Their most popular wines is the preservative free Dry Red. It is reputed to be one of the the best preservative or organic wines around and they have a good assortment of both whites and reds, again preservative free. Apparently there is a laborious process the wines go through to prevent oxygen from contaminating the wine through all the steps of the process and their commitment to creating an old world wine making tradition and keeping it in the family is impressive!
Nice wines, with the practice of no added preservatives and not filtered, makes it very nice to drink for all! Highly recommend this beautiful Cellar Door visit! And their offerings are quite a wide variety, and well priced.

The setting of his cellar is unique and stunning with a touch of Tuscany. By far La Cantina is the best winery in the King Valley. I will be ordering from Gino again very soon.
