Domenica is a small batch wine project in the Beechworth wine region of Victoria. Set amongst the hills of this stunning plateau lies the fabled prestige vines of Giaconda. Giaconda is arguably the region’s most acclaimed producer and amongst the most collected wines in Australia.
Peter Graham spent 13 years learning from his uncle, director and head winemaker for Giaconda. Following this stint, Peter was rewarded with access to some of Giaconda’s vineyards and his own space in the winery to start his own project, thus Domenica was born. Peter manages all his estate vineyards organically and makes the wines with European styles and quality in mind.
This beautiful Domenica Rosé is made from 100% Nebbiolo, a pale copper colour that just screams out for seafood and sunshine by the shore. This Rosé is savoury and crisp, and sidesteps the heavy fruitiness or sweetness of some Rosé. This wine will go with literally all of our food, particularly delicious with the charcuterie, or none of it and just sitting back and enjoying the view.
