STARTING FROM SCRATCHFerraro Wines is owned and operated by Myrtleford born and bred locals Tony and Josie Ferraro. It was Tony’s parents Francesco and Carmela Ferraro who first planted 5 acres of vines in Merriang just outside Myrtleford in the late 1960’s. Tony’s parents grew grapes for their fellow Italian community who had made their home in Myrtleford and brought with them their love of winemaking and enjoying wine. Continuing a family tradition of grape growing and wine making for over 50 years, Tony and Josie planted their own vines in 1997 and have established a small boutique winery.
OUR WINESTony and Josie grow grapes for many wineries in the district as well as for their own Ferraro label.
The varieties grown on their property are Merlot, Sangiovese, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino. Tony passionately makes wine for the Ferraro label at their Clancy Lane property from the Merlot, Sangiovese, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Vermentino and Rosé varieties.
