Overview

In 2011 Pizzini quietly released a new range of wines under the Lana label.

These wines are made by Joel Pizzini. Joel is using some old winemaking techniques

to make these wines so that some of them show more funky, earthy and savoury notes to the wines in the Pizzini range. These wines are made to be enjoyed with food, especially dishes with Italian flavours.

We named this range after a special town in northern Italy called Lana. Lana is located in the Trentino-Alto Adige region and is situated between the towns of Bolzano and Merano.

Prior to moving to Australia to forge a different future for their young family, Roberto and Rosetta Pizzini had settled in the northern Italian town of Lana. After marrying, Roberto found a job as a fitter and turner in a factory there, while Rosetta became a mother. Her third son Alfredo was born whilst they lived in Lana.

Lana was, and still is thought of as their Italian home.
