La Violetta Wines

Western Australia | Great Southern

Our Review

La Violetta is owned by husband and wife team Andrew Hoadley and Hanna Reichel, who first met in Canberra and worked several vintages together at Constellation's Kamberra Winery. Andrew had majored in history at the University of Queensland, and completed a wine science degree from CSU in 2003. Rhineland-born Hanna Reichel has a PhD in entomology, and completed three-quarters of the CSU wine science degree before children intervened. Andrew's first wine experience was pruning for De Bortoli in the Yarra Valley in 1997, before going on to work at Bay of Fires, Cumulus Wines, Dominion Wines, Kamberra and Castelli Estate, also winemaking in Piedmont and Washington State. In '14, the couple embarked upon La Violetta full-time, with Andrew as winemaker, after comfortably settling in Denmark. Exports to the UK. -JAMES HALLIDAY
