Vincenzo Berlingieri is a larger than life graduate of Perugia University, Italy. He arrived in Melbourne with beard flowing and arms waving (his words) in 1964 as a research scientist to work in plant genetics. He subsequently moved to SA, and gained considerable publicity for the winery he then owned, and for his larger than life wines. There is nothing new in the reincarnated Settlement Wines, it still has big table wines, but with specialities in liqueurs and fortified wines.
This winery is now closed.
