Julien’s wife Alli was born on this farm, and the Cecchini Family had been farming this land in Knightsen for nearly a century before it was sold in 2021. After farming this vineyard organically for the past 5 years, they are working closely with the new owners to maintain those standards. Grown in a patch of delhi sand X sandy loam, this 25-year-old Malvasia planting continues to stun each season with its resilience and consistency.
