Owner Angelo De Fazio says that all he knows about viticulture and winemaking came from his father (and generations before him).Zitta is Italian for ‘quiet’, and the seeming reflection of the letters of the name Zitta on the label is in fact nothing of the kind, turn the bottle upside down, and you will see it is the word ‘Quiet’. The Zitta vineyard dates back to 1864, with a few vines remaining from that time, and a block planted with cuttings taken from those vines. Shiraz dominates the plantings (24ha), the balance made up of grenache, mataro and nero d'avola. The property has 2 branches of Greenock Creek running through it and the soils reflect the ancient geological history of the site.
