Majolini Winery sits on the northeastern border of Franciacorta and is built upon the hilly area of Valle. The winery borrows from the vernacular of old farm houses and local building traditions and it is in the soil, climate of the region in which Majolini’s vineyards and grapes are grown. Simone Maoilini from Majolini is in town to showcase the wine range and we head up to the very scenic spit up in Mosman for a food and wine pairing at the hatted Ormeggio at the Spit. Alex Pavoni was also on hand to walk us through the menu Ormeggio had curated to pair with the Majolini wines. Its amazing food and delicious wines, you really can’t ask for more. Ormeggio is also currently the only restaurant in Sydney serving up Majolini although you are able to order these excellent Italian wines online Here

Majolini Wines signature identity and branding across their range is an appealing minimal effort. All the bottles had the same exact look sans colour and type of wine labelled below – the copper one is their Pas Dose. The range on there also includes the Majolini Rose, Brut, Electo, Saten, Blanc de Noir.

Tomato sponge, buffalo mozzarella – extra virgin olive oil, basil. (R) A baccala (saltcod) fritters – dill mayonnaise. Ormeggio’s had this curiously sky blue ceramic plate that was appealing to the touch and a neat quirk in an otherwise charmingly elegant venue. Baccala fritter when eaten with the light and somewhat tangy tomatoe sponge worked wonders.
