Tony Love Reviews La Biondina for The Advertiser

'...Primo Estate is the go for stylish-looking table wine which has been part of Adelaide summers for decades and remains still a great little refresher, a tropical holiday in a bottle. You'll lock on to passionfruit, guava and crunchy pineapple flavours all filling the sensories with plenty of bite and tang, balancing the natural fruit sweetness of the grapes within. Good seasonal drinks.'

- Tony Love, The Advertiser November 2016

Primo Estate Winners The Architecture and Landscape Category in the South Australian Best of Wine Tourism Awards’

Primo Estate is honoured to be named winner of the Landscape and Architecture Category of the South of Australian Best of Wine Tourism Awards. We will now go on to represent Australia in the International awards with a final winner from each Great Wine Capital to be announced in Porto, Portugal in November. The Chair of the South Australian Judging Panel, Karen Raffen said, 'The winners represent the best of SA’s wine tourism businesses – they’re outstanding in their field and are leading in their respective award categories.
The inaugural awards program shines a spotlight on the best from our state and allows them to stand alongside some of the world’s most prestigious and well-known wine operators from around the globe.'

‘The most intelligently beautiful wine tasting edifice in this state, possibly the known universe’ wrote Phillip White when Primo Estate’s new cellar door opened in 2006. A dream three decades in the making, Joe Grilli took inspiration from his 28 vintages in South Australia, Italy and France to create the perfect tasting space. Like Joe’s wines, the building uses Australian natural materials in an Italian style to produce something unique. As we celebrate its 10th anniversary, the design is fulfilling Joe and Dina's dream. Joe says of the win:

'We told the three young architects “build us a modern Australian interpretation of a small Italian square – a piazzetta. Oh and can you design it so that it doesn’t date please!”. To win this award almost exactly 10 years after the building was completed is a testament to their success in meeting the brief. It is a wonderful feeling to have this acknowledgement of our vision and the architects’ skill in translating it into reality. The architects really listened to our vision and they came up with something that surpassed our dreams.'

Rest in Peace Primo Grilli, 1934 - 2016

I am saddened to share with you the passing of Joe's father, Primo Grilli. From humble beginnings in Italy's Le Marche region, Primo set off on a great adventure to build a new life in Australia. His second great act of optimism was investing all he had in a winery for his 19 year old son Joe, who was studying wine making at Roseworthy College. From the company he started as a grape grower, Primo lived to see bottles of wine bearing his name spread across Australia and around the world - an astonishing legacy.

I hope that you will join us in raising a glass to the man who made Primo Estate possible and celebrating a life well lived.

JOSEPH Sparkling Red Returns!

The newly bottled 2016 degorgement of NV JOSEPH Sparkling Red has finally arrived, months after we sold out of the previous bottling.

The last bottling of our iconic JOSEPH Sparkling Red was awarded 96 points and second spot in the whole of Australia in Tyson Stelzer's 2016 Australian Sparkling Wine Report:

'The latest disgorgement of this iconic sparkling red captures all the mystery and the theatrics of a blend of every vintage since the late eighties and some from the early sixties and seventies. McLaren Vale shiraz brings its vibrant, full purple hue and its black fruit depth, while cabernet and merlot contribute their bright blackcurrant crunch and fine tannin grip. The finish explodes into an endless panoply of dark chocolate, black olives, exotic spice, dried fruits and coal dust. Masterful.' - Tyson Stelzer, May 2016
