About

Billy Button is named after the yellow native flowers shaped like balls that bounce on the tops of the Alpine Valleys. Billy Button Wines burst onto the scene in 2014. With a wealth of established vineyards in the region tended to by dedicated growers, there was no reason for Billy Button to establish their own vineyards. Instead they work with a number of highly accomplished local growers to secure some of the best fruit available in the region. The wines they make focus on varietal diversity.

WineNebbiolo is known as the 'King' of Italian grape varieties and is notoriously difficult to grow and make. The mountainous topography and climate of the Alpine Valleys is not that dissimilar to Piedmont, the Italian home of the variety. Growers Tony and Josie put in an inordinate amount of time to their small patch of Nebbiolo to ensure the quality of the resultant grapes. The fruit is handpicked and destemmed direct into Flexcube for fermentation using wild yeast. At the completion of fermentation, the Flexcube is topped and left to macerate on skins for 10 months. It is then pressed out and allowed to mature for a further 9 months in Flexcube without any oak prior to bottling. Once bottled, the wine is then matured for an additional 12 months prior to release. 13% ABV.
