Sources of Italian wines in Australia

by Darby
(Puglia (for this week))

A reader has emailed me

We have just recently returned from our trip to Italy. We enjoyed many wines from Tuscany but preferred the Sicilian Nero d'avola. Can you please tell me where i can purchase this beautiful wine. We are in the Essendon, Victoria area.


I Replied

"Hi Dianne,
We are on our way south at the moment. Just entered Puglia, heading to Sicily next week, and looking forward to some good s Italian wines.

About six months ago I bought some ND at the mediterranean
grocers in sydney road. I can never remember whether it is north of Moreland Rd therefore Coburg, or south, therefore Brunswwick.

You could also try Dan Murphy in Mount Alexander road.

Brown Bros make a small amount each year. You need to be in their club, free to join, but their ND is nearly always sold out."

Can you Help?

I'm sure some Vinodiversity readers will have some better advice about good stockists of Nero d'Avola wine and other Italian wines in Melbourne.

If you can help please add a comment below.
