Who We Are

We are a family of Sicilian and British heritage that has resided on the property for over 70 years.  Currently three generations live and work on our 25 acre orchard. La Fattoria was created from a desire to share both our Italian heritage and the beauty of our property that nestles in the Piesse Brook valley of the Perth hills.   Eric and Lucy are the owners of La Fattoria Perth Hills and we welcome you to our home for a taste of Italy.

The Experience Matters

'Conversation with Italy' is our catch cry.... After visiting Italy in 2012 we discovered that food and wine is deeply connected in Italian family, culture and tradition.  It's based on a respectful relationship between food and wine with each complementing the other.  La Fattoria is our interpretation of this and we invite you and your family to take a journey with us into this food and wine experience.

The Vineyard

We commenced planting our vineyard in 2012 on the eastern side of the property.  The remainder of the vineyard was established the following year resulting in eleven different varieties of Italian wine grapes in production.  We currently have approximately 6000 vines producing 10 tonnes of fruit each year.  Our wines are produced solely from our property and are not blended with other varieties.  This gives guests the opportunity to taste Italian varietals in their purest form that reflects both the varietal characteristics and the 'terroir' of the Perth hills.

The Orchard

Our orchard was established over 70 years ago when the Radice family purchased the property. Initially it was cleared and planted with citrus trees and vegetables however over the following decades these made way for a range of stone and pomme fruit.  Today, there is an estimated 1000 fruit trees comprising of several varieties of apples, pears and stone fruit plus figs, persimmons and citrus. The orchard was downsized to make way for the vineyard in 2012 adapting to the reduced yearly rainfall levels and falling fruit prices. Fruit Loop is  the name of our farm gate shop where our home grown fruit can be purchased within hours or sometimes minutes of harvest. La Fattoria is now a perfect blend of vineyard and orchard giving rise to beautiful Perth hills fruit and delightful Italian wine. We look forward to sharing it with you.
