Luisini Winery

Italian migrant Ezio Luisini established a winery in 1929. He had settled in the Wanneroo area in 1924 and initially planted the vineyard as a sideline to the operation of his wine cellar in Perth. At 40 hectares, it became the largest privately owned winery in the southern hemisphere.

The winery’s role in the development of Wanneroo and its operations are inextricably linked to the life of the Italian community and their market gardens which flourished in the area from the 1920s – 1960s.

Ezio Luisini was an influential member of the Italian community. His shop in William Street, Northbridge was often the first port of call for new Italian migrants. From here Ezio gave advice, answered their questions, offered favourable credit and was even known to store their luggage while they were out looking for work.

We manage a collection of nearly 600 wine bottles from Luisini Winery, many with their contents intact, as well as a small collection of objects associated with wine production.
