Fast forward three generations and wine making has entwined itself within Renzaglia DNA. In 1997, back in Australia, Mark and Sandy planted their first small acreage of grapes. This became their Bella Luna vineyard in the O’Connell Valley, NSW. There were no other vineyards in the O’Connell Valley at that time, as was the case for Guy and Betty in Alto Pass.
Nowadays, Sam is on board full time in the vineyard and winery. His passion for the grape and wine industry is undeniable and the future of the operation is bright.
The Bella Luna Vineyard has more than doubled in size since 2020; leases have commenced at the Mt Panorama Estate and Winooka Park Vineyards and the wine is now all being produced in their new winery building overlooking the original vine plantings.
