What an event!! We want to take the time to thank the performers, staff, and in particular the attendees who helped make this event such a spectacular evening. We look forward to doing it all over again next year.


La Locanda offers a complete wine tasting experience and light menu with delicatessen quality local and imported produce which can be enjoyed onsite or taken away to enjoy at your leisure. We are very excited about this latest addition to Poderi Crisci.

Poderi Crisci Membership Club ‘En Primeur’

Poderi Crisci “En Primeur”

Be amongst the first to enjoy each new vintage of Poderi Crisci wines
Poderi Crisci “En Primeur” gives you the chance to buy wines as soon as they are released at prices that are well below the regular cellar door price. With the release of each vintage you will receive 6 bottles of each new Poderi Crisci wine, and will also receive a copy of the wine makers notes on the vantage and vinification process.
A great opportunity to improve your cellar with some wines that will never be on offer outside of Poderi Crisci restaurant.
Given the low production and boutique nature of Poderi Crisci, we take the time to ensure that every wine we produce is unique to us and has a history and story behind it as unique as the wine itself.
