Nero D'Avola, the Hunter's Sicilian immigrant

With ancient Greek origins, this grape varietal has been made famous in Sicily. The name Nero D'Avola means "black from Avola", Avola being a town just south of Syracuse. In Italy, it is now considered a noble grape varietal. Nero d'Avola has been in Australia for about 20 years now, with Mount Eyre Vineyards bringing it to the Hunter Valley a decade ago. Nero d'Avola performs well in hot, dry climates, making it suited to Hunter conditions. Our first vintage was 2013.
