The founding of Villa Maria hinged on a pivotal conversation between Sir George and his father and conversations have continued to play a crucial role in making us one of the most successful family-owned wineries in the world. Here at Villa Maria, we think it’s time to celebrate the value of conversation in our lives and remind the world of the pleasure of taking quality time out with friends, colleagues, loved ones – or even strangers - over a glass of wine, while celebrating something truly invaluable: conversation.

Throughout the summer, you can expect a whole host of chatter from us – we’re asking the nation what makes conversation so special to them, uncovering our secret likes and dislikes and taking the time to sit down with experts in their fields and pick their brains about what they feel is so special about the Value of Conversation. All of this, along with our ‘Wine Down with Villa Maria’ talks, will delve into four important aspects of conversation which you can explore with us - grab a glass of wine and a friend, sit back, and enjoy!
