History & Geography
The Conte Family 1910 – 1960 Born in Italy, Antonino (Tony) Conte lived in America with his family at the ‘Ranch’ in Ossining, New York between 1914 -1925 where he did most of his schooling. He moved back to Italy again where he met and later married Giulia (Julia). With 4 children they immigrated in 1953 to McLaren Vale, South Australia, from a little mountain top town of Sassinoro, 3 hours drive south of Rome. Noble in name and spirit, they brought with them the knowledge handed down from generations of vineyard and wine tradition and the commitment to hard work and family life. Tony quickly became a well liked and respected member of the McLaren Vale community. He befriended both Australian and Italians and people enjoyed his humble nature and intelligent conversation. There is no doubt that Tony will also be remembered for his charismatic New York - Italian accent and for his keen interest in Australian, American, Italian & English politics.
