A taste of Italy in South Australia
Published on: September 23, 2021
La Prova Wines
La Prova refines the traditional textural and savoury characteristics of Italian varieties to create approachable, sophisticated wines of depth that keep curious drinkers interested.

Winemaker Sam Scott founded La Prova in 2008, after two decades of experience in the wine industry, both internationally and in South Australia. He developed a natural affinity with Italian grape varieties early in his career, and came to see Australia as the ideal place for growing them, especially as temperatures rise.

La Prova is a grand experiment that brings together traditional Italian varieties and ancient Australian soils. The pairing creates wines that are ready for the future from grapes that use less water and withstand warming conditions.

Wine Maker La Prova Masterclass

The fruit is sourced from vineyards best suited to each variety; largely from the varied topography of the Adelaide Hills, but from farther afield too including Prosecco from King Valley and Nero d’Avola from McLaren Vale.

Italian varieties need less water and thrive in warmer conditions. Many are future-ready, supporting a production philosophy that is inherently sustainable, and some would say necessary, to ensure the future of Australian wine.

La Prova prefers hand picking the fruit, using indigenous yeasts and older oak, and to avoid filtering, fining and additions except for minimal sulphites.

All wines are vegan friendly.

2021 La Prova Pinot Grigio

Vibrant, racy and bright. Aromas of Nashi pears and apples, which are also found on the dry, crisp refreshing palate. Great intensity and liveliness.
