Ricca Terra Farms is a small vineyard property specialising in Alternative Southern Italian grape varieties.
Owners Ashley & Holly Ratcliff selected these varieties based on their capacity to produce high
quality wines in a warmer environment. In contrast to the vast majority of Riverland
grape-producers, the Ratcliffs micro-manage their vineyard, using hands-on techniques usually associated with premium regions (such as Margaret RIver), Efforts include minimal irrigation,leaf-plucking, shoot and bunch-thinning, wire-lifting and general canopy management to ensure even ripeness and low yields across the board.

The resulting wines are generous and warm, yet with a lightness of being.
