Our long hot and challenging summer is now over. We still have our Picolit and Aleatico to harvest, but all our other fruit is now wine! Time now to look ahead to Easter, and the bottling of our 2014 whites in mid-May.

We’ve tweaked our Late Summer Menu (available on Fridays and weekends) to reflect the (early) end to the fig season. In it’s place, we’ve brought back our popular anchovy pizza. View it here.

We are shortly – next week in fact- to release three new wines. They are the first of three 2013 Sangiovese styles, our 2013 Picolit, and the premium white blend 2013 Adagio. All will be featured on our Web shop in the near future.

Our di Lusso calendar for 2014 events is detailed in the What’s On section of our web site. But here's a heads up for a couple of events that are happening during April and May. We're showing the Oscar Award winning movie "The Great Beauty" at Cinema di Lusso on Easter Saturday 19 April at 7pm. Dinner and movie $60 per person (Members $50) includes a glass of wine with each course - MORE DETAILS…

BOOKINGS ~ 02-6373 3125 or email sales@dilusso.com.au

Easter at di Lusso Estate
In addition to our Cinema di Lusso offering on the Saturday evening of 19th April, we are pleased to offer

  • On Good Friday lunch pan-fried salmon or trout (in addition to our full menu)
  • On Saturday 19th, Sunday 20th and Monday 21st, a spit roasted lamb, served with the traditional Italian Easter Tart – a savory explosion of ricotta, spinach, egg and parmesan cheese!

Bookings are essential for all lunches, please

On 3 May we will have our seventh quarterly regional dinner. The region we've chosen for this one is Rome! We pair a five course meal – in this case based on Roman food – with wines, stories and pictures of the mother city. There is, I believe a good mix of Roman street food and more exotic faire!
7 pm - $100 per person ($90 for Members)

di Lusso wine

At di Lusso Estate vineyards, we specialize in Italian varieties and blends. We grow eight varieties of grapes;
Dry white varieties, Arneis and Vermentino.
Dry red varieties Sangiovese, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Lagrein.

At any one time, we might have seventeen wine styles on offer. White wines Pinot Grigio and Vermentino (two styles each), a varietal Arneis, two white blends Adagio and Allegro, and a sparkling Vivo!

We usually have two rosé styles in our range (both ‘dry’ but with a small amount of residual sugar)

Our red wine range includes Sangiovese, Lagrein and Barbera (sometimes two styles of each), a premium red blend (‘il Palio’) and a ‘ verandah’ Rosso version

Dessert wine varieties are Aleatico and Picolit (and we use Vermentino as a source grape for our sweet Appassimento style wine).

di Lusso food

Restaurant: open Friday to Sunday 12pm-2.30pm for a la carte and pizza menu. Other weekdays our Chef’s Special, Antipasto & Cheese Platters.

Please note: Cucina di Lusso is a Trattoria-style restaurant intended to allow potential wine buyers the opportunity to taste our Italian varietal wines in their very best environment – in the company of food!

Ours is a very busy cellar door, with wine sales our main activity, and our small kitchen and pizza oven are just not suited to large groups wanting fast service during weekends. There are necessary constraints on the number or pizzas per table, and if we can accommodate a large booking the a la carte menu is not always available. We like to think that our offering, whilst simple, uses the best produce – local where possible – and is well cooked.

Welcome to our Early Autumn menu! It’s intended – in both the pizza and a la carte versions – to be a blend of some traditional Italian favourites and a few dishes we haven’t offered before. We invite you all to come out, taste some, and give us your thoughts!
