LA VITA PAZZA (The Crazy Life)
We are proud to introduce a second label from LA FRENZ, “LA VITA PAZZA” (The Crazy Life). Niva and I come from the Riverina area, well known as the bread basket of eastern Australia and also for its strong Italian culture. Italian immigrants flocked there between 1920 and 1960, after the region became well known for its fertile soils. If you planted a nail, it would quickly grow into a crowbar!!
The inspiration for these wines is a reflection of the experiences of our childhood and growing up immersed in this transplanted Italian culture. These wines are partly a tribute to Niva’s Italian heritage and the crazy life that shaped her family’s history. Amongst all the fantastic stories of courage and resilience was the dream of a better life.
Italians are serious about their food and wine, particularly if grown and produced at home. Authenticity and quality is paramount, but at the same time so is great value, so that sharing a bottle or two can be enjoyed on any occasion.
These wines are just so drinkable, brimming with ripe fruits as expected of the Okanagan. Both have already won awards at the 2016 Intervin International and represent exceptional value.
To introduce these wines we are offering free shipping on a case of either the white blend, red blend or a mixed case until the 10th October. Perfect timing for sharing with friends and family at Thanksgiving.
LA VITA PAZZA White Blend, $18
This is a blend of mostly Muscat and Riesling. The Muscat provides the exotic tropical fruit notes while the Riesling provides a lovely backbone of lime, minerality and acidity. Extremely fragrant with a touch of sweetness, this wine needs only to be paired with a gathering of good friends.
LA VITA PAZZA Red Blend, $20
This wine is blended to be a crowd pleaser, with lovely dark colour, aromas of blackberry jam and ripe cherry pie laced with vanilla bean. The palate has plenty of mouthfeel and heft but is ready to drink upon release.
Niva and Jeff Martin
