Torzi Matthews, a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews have passion and the firm conviction of appreciating the value of heritage tradition in the crafting of their wines and olive produce.
Domenic is fifth generation Calabrian – Abruzzese stock and grew up on the Adelaide Plains working for the family’s market gardens, Tracy was born and raised in Newcastle, NSW with a long career in hospitality.
In 1996 we stumbled across a small, frost-pocketed hollow in the beautiful Mt McKenzie, Eden Valley and fell in love with the area for its remoteness and its diverse thin soils. The rationale was quite simple: this land would produce low yields of fruit which in turn would translate into flavoursome European style wines – the style of wines needed to match our Mediterranean food. We had plenty of detractors and lots of unsolicited advice, some good, some …well some people don’t have vision.
