Allevare wines are Lucy and Alysha, who grow grapes and make them into lovely wine on their Gippsland based property.
Lucy was born in the UK and moved over to Albury with her family when she was young. She grew up helping her Dad on their family farm near Albury and this is where she found her passion for farming sustainably and working in harmony with the land. She has been working in the wine industry for the last 12 years, completing 14 vintages in Chile, France and around Australia and in 2018, Lucy finished her Masters of Oenology and Viticulture at Adelaide University.
Alysha was born in Melbourne and worked as a qualified florist in both London and Victoria. She spent much of her career working in events and large scale floral installations and after many years of working in London, decided to base herself in West Gippsland with her partner Lucy. It was here that she found her love and inspiration for viticulture and wine making.
Alysha's family is from Siracusa and the Aeolian Islands in Sicily. After many trips there, she is constantly inspired by the people, the way of life and most importantly the food and wine. This influence inspired their namesake 'Allevare', which means to grow and nurture in Sicilian.
