Bottle - Wine, Glass, Clear, circa 1960s-1990s Reg. No: HT 5335
- Glass bottle containing wine produced by the di Benedetto family, circa 1960s-1990s. The Di Benedetto family produced wine at their home in Thornbury, from the 1960s to 1991.

As the family dispersed, Vito di Benedetto continued to make wine once every three years, with the assistance of Maria and often his daughter Angela, until his death in 1991.
