Everything about Nuova Scuola wines embraces standing out from the rest. From their varieties to their label artwork, it is clear husband and wife winemakers Sarah Boyce and Stefano Radici are doing it differently.

Their name means ‘new school’ and Sarah says it is a philosophy they have taken into their business and wine making.

“We are really focusing on different varieties rather than your mainstream shiraz, chardonnay and merlot. We’ve focused on more alternate varieties because we are finding that is what really works in our Region,” Sarah said.

“We’ve got viognier, sangiovese, nebbiolo, tempranillo, those kinds of varieties which we think grow better in our area. It also works in with Stefano’s Italian background, using the old-school varieties from the Mediterranean, but doing them in a new style and in a new climate.”

Sarah said the response had been very positive. “People are liking what we are doing and they like getting to taste something different,” she said.

Nuova Scuola wines are available for tasting at their co-operative cellar door, Barambah Cellars, and are available for purchase online, with free shipping within Queensland.


Nuova Scuola wines are available at Barambah Cellars, 167 Tipperary Road, Moffatdale, Thursday to Sunday, 10.30am – 4.30pm.
