Hammer used to knock in tap into wooden whisky barrel, circa 1990. It was used in domestic wine production by the Di Benedetto family at their home in Thornbury, circa 1990. They began making wine in the 1960s, and in the early years the wine making was very much a family affair, with everyone contributing to the annual ritual. 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.
