Finestra’s vines were planted by family and friends in 1989 with subsequent plantings taking place in 1996. A renovation programme is currently underway to ensure the longevity of original vine-stock and where appropriate some replacement with an enhanced varietal composition.
The vineyard is currently comprised of six acres including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Pinot Noir and Shiraz
Although not certified as organic or biodynamic the Langs are committed to maintaining a healthy and sustainable environment for their vineyard and home. Viticultural systems include the use of manual over mechanical processes wherever possible, a strict no pesticide usage policy, the encouragement of beneficial insects to support pest management and the provision of natural vegetation in vineyard surrounds to support microfauna.
The name dalla mia Finestra is Italian for from my window. The family homestead and winery is surrounded by the vineyard and every day, Bruce and Jo-Anne look at their world from their window. Through years of travel, the Langs have developed a love for both the Italian culture and way of life and this somewhat influenced the name selection.
