OwnerWinemaker: FrancoD'Anna Vineyards are located in Hoddle Creek along the rolling hills of Upper Yarra Valley, Victoria. Franco, who has been in the wine business since 1963, said he grew up surrounded by wine. Franco graduated with a master's degree in commerce from the University of Melbourne while working as a purchaser at his family's wine merchant. Then he started planting trees to make the wine he loved. After that, from 2000 to 2002, Mario Marson of MountMary, Peter Dredge of RedEdge, and in 2006, Burgundy, we are devoted to brushing up the wine. In 2004, 03HoddlesCheekChardonnay won two trophies at the Victorian Wine Show, making their presence known. Since 2009, it has been served in both First Class and Business Class lounges on Australia's flagship Qantas Airways. "LessisMore" His winemaking is summarized in this one word. His wine, cultivated and brewed with minimal artificial techniques, faithfully expresses the terroir and is sure to remind the drinker of HoddlesCheek, which has yet to be seen. Winner of Best Value Winery of the Year 2015.
