Va La Family Farmed Wines
Our farm produces four wines from a small hill near Avondale, Pennsylvania.

Each wine is made from a blend of northern italian varieties that have been selected by the soils over time, and is unique to this tiny field.

“…some of the most unconventional and refined bottles of
East Coast vino that I have tasted.”
— Craig LaBan, Philadelphia Inquirer

“Safe to say, there are few wineries nationally,
let alone regionally, as unique as Va La Vineyards.”
— Paul Vigna, Patriot News Harrisburg

“Friends helping me locate potentially interesting growers in Pennsylvania (where I grew up) suggested a visit to
Va La Vineyards. After some persistence, I received from proprietor Anthony Vietri an odd reply – clearly not meant to be
coy or unfriendly – recommending I spare myself the trouble. I’m sure glad I didn’t, because the highly unorthodox quintet
that issues from two dozen (mostly Italianate) cépages (largely in field blends!) on six acres set just back from the
main drag of tiny Avondale (northwest of Wilmington, Delaware) is worth a detour; and Vietri is passionate, experimental,
articulate, and focused on vineyard excellence. Whether his orange “white” La Prima Donna; his deep rosé Silk; Cinderbox;
Cedar; or Mahogany (the smoky and chocolaty-rich 2010 of which was due to be bottled about now, but won’t be released
before late this year) these will cause you to lick your lips as you rethink many things you thought you knew…”
— David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate, “Best of 2012”

“They sure as hell had better be racking on the new moon,
that’s all I’ve got to say.”
— Proud grandmother of the winemaker
