Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot

Burgundy, France

 

Jean-Marc Pillot is the fourth generation of his branch of the Pillot family to tend vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet. He joined his father, Jean, in 1985 to learn the craft of “vigneron”. After six years of working side-by-side, Jean-Marc assumed the direction of the domaine in 1991 with the assistance of his wife, Nadine, and his sister, Beatrice. Of course, his father, Jean, remains by his side rendering advice and valuable assistance in the vineyards (often while he is tending the garden in back of the chai!). Jean-Marc has instituted several changes at the estate, the most prominent of which is the construction of a new cave. Of equal importance, Jean-Marc expanded the amount of vineyards under cultivation and has made subtle modifications in vinification and elevage to place his own “mark” on this estate which now covers approximately fifteen hectares with an annual production of, more or less, 60,000 bottles.

La Spinetta

Barbaresco, Italy

The Rivetti family story began in the 1890s when Giovanni Rivetti, grandfather to brothers Carlo, Bruno and Giorgio, left Piedmont for Argentina. Like many Italians at that time, he dreamed of returning rich and a powerful man, and perhaps even one day having the opportunity to make a great wine in his homeland. Though Giovanni never did, his son, Giuseppe (nicknamed “Pin”), fulfilled the dream. Pin married Lidia, purchased vineyards, and began to make wine. In 1977 the family took up residence at LA SPINETTA (meaning “top of the hill”) in Castagnole Lanze, located in the heart of the area well-known for Moscato d’Asti, a rather light and simple dessert wine at the time. The Rivetti’s believed, however, that Moscato had the potential for greatness and set out to prove it by producing the region’s first single-vineyard Moscato wines, Bricco Quaglia and Biancospino.

Over time, the family’s vision became even grander, and in 1985 LA SPINETTA made its first red wine, Barbera Cà di Pian, with many great reds to follow. In 1989 the Rivetti brothers named their red blend (Nebbiolo/Barbera) “Pin” in honor of their father. The first Barbaresco, Gallina, was produced in 1995 followed by Barbarescos Starderi, Barbera d’Alba Gallina in 1996 and and Barbaresco Valeirano in 1997. Barbera d’Asti Superiore entered the lineup in 1998.

In 2000 the family’s ambition of adding a Barolo to the winery production became a reality. The Rivetti’s acquired vineyards in Grinzane Cavour where a state of the art cellar, LA SPINETTA Campè, was also constructed.

In 2001 LA SPINETTA expanded beyond the borders of Piedmont, acquiring 65 hectares (160 acres) of vineyards in Tuscany, between Pisa and Volterra, where three different 100% Sangiovese wines are produced. For LA SPINETTA Sangiovese is the true ambassador of the Tuscan terrain. From 2004 to 2012 the indigenous Tuscan portfolio was completed with the production of a Colorino, a Vermentino, a Prugnolo Gentile, a Chianti and a Rosé wine made from Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile.

In 2011 LA SPINETTA yet adds another winery to the exisiting thrre and purchases Italy’s oldest Metodo Classico sparkling wine producer, CONTRATTO, in Canelli, Piedmont. The exquisite bubbles of CONTRATTO as well as the Vermouths and Bitter make LA SPINETTA’s already large wine portfolio complete.

Castellroig

Catalunya, Spain

 

Unique to the Cava producing region of Penedes, Castellroig represents one of the few 100% family owned, estate run establishments. Father and son, Marcelino Sabaté and Marcel Sabaté I Coca, apply all of their efforts and passion to maintain family tradition while incorporating technological advancements in the cellar. Four generations of organic grape growing with complete respect for the environment and varietals native to the land.

With complete dedication to producing wines reflective of the soil, the concept of ‘Vins de Terrer’ was born. A location 40km south of Barcelona affords a privileged location with a valley protected by mountains and a moderate climate due to the close proximity to the Mediterranean coast. Marine sediment embedded in the soil promotes vines with a longer, slower ripening cycle and added complexity in the grapes. The Sabaté I Coca estate is distributed across 18 terroirs, 62 parcels, and 40 hectares throughout the Valle del Bitlles. Grapes are carefully selected for each bottling and hand harvested from each of these terroirs. Castellroig achieves the ultimate expressions of these different parcels with extra focus on the native Xarel-lo grape. Capable of achieving the greatest aromatics, body, and acidity, Xarel-lo represents the most favorable varietal in the Cava blend.

Carmelo Patti

Mendoza, Argentina

 

If you are lucky enough to secure an appointment, a visit to Carmelo Patti’s small, rustic winery in the heart of Lujan de Cuyo will without question be one of the more memorable wine tours of your life.

Carmelo is one of Mendoza’s great old-school winemaking personalities and runs every corner of this quirky operation himself. Originally brought to Argentina on a small boat from Sicily when he was one year old, Carmelo was a catalyst for the rebirth of fine wine production in Mendoza in the eighties and is, to this day, one of the most respected enologists in the country. Carmelo’s winemaking style is equally unique as his character, and he insists on holding all wine until he deems it “ready” for release which generally means 4-5 years after harvest at the soonest for reds. All wines are made naturally, with no chemical additives and only native yeast.

Bodega Amalia

Mendoza, Argentina

Originally from Genoa, Italy, the Basso Family has been producing wine since 1922. In their beginning they owned the “Purísima” winery from where they sold wines in 220 liter wooden barrels.

In 1935, Carlos Basso, together with his brother Tulio, purchased the “Santa Ana” winery, eventually turning it into one of Argentina’s largest premium brands. Seeking to simplify their lives and once again become involved in small production winemaking, the family sold “Santa Ana” in 1996. Using the profits from this sale the Basso’s purchased and remodeled a small winery in Carrodilla, Mendoza the following year. Inside this space the Vina Amalia winery was born. The winery uses 100% estate fruit, with two vineyards in Mendoza’s Uco Valley. Carlos and his son Adolfo run the day to day operations of the winery.

Branchini Wines

Emilia-Romagna, Italy

In 1858 the Branchini family commenced its agricultural activity on these lands. Since then, the Estate continues to be managed by the family which has, over the years, refined its techniques in order to continually improve the “Character” of the territory’s wines.    This choice has given way to experiments in the vineyard including new ways of planting, new varieties, selected harvesting and continuing  research on the characteristic vines of the area.  The vine growing operations are geared to avoid “forcing” the biological process and to maintain the physiological balance of the wine itself.   The Land, author and seal of our wines, owes its characteristics to the three rivers that flow through the Estate. The Sabbioso, Sillaro and Sellustra, over the centuries, have created the geological characteristics of this area. The alchemy of sand, clay and lime together with the  microclimate of this location confer to the wines their own distinct character.

Bianchi

California, USA

The Bianchi family has a long history of involvement in the wine Industry, dating back to 1974 when Glenn and his father, Joseph invested in a winery and vineyard on the banks of the San Joaquin river in the Central Valley of California

Utilizing the most advanced farming and production technologies, the Bianchi family quickly grew to become an industry leader, producing award winning wines.

In pursuit of his lifelong ambition of producing ultra-premium wines, Glenn set his sights on finding a new vineyard and winery location. After searching throughout California for the finest terroir to meet his requirements, he settled on Paso Robles. Glenn was impressed with the region’s outstanding reputation for quality wines and its natural beauty.

In January of 2000, Bianchi purchased 40 acres of vineyards on the East side of Paso Robles and built a showcase winery and spectacular hospitality center on the property.

Situated on a gentle rise, the new Bianchi Winery has a commanding view looking west over undulating vineyards dotted with ancient oaks. The state of the art stainless steel fermentation tanks provide the winemaker the latest computerized monitoring system and the option to make select, limited production wines. Similarly, the new barrel room for the French and American oak has the capacity to allow blending and aging of small lots.

The Bianchi Tasting Room is the fulfillment of Glenn Bianchi’s dream to provide a great sensory experience for visitors to the property.

Nestled in the estate vineyards, the facility rises above a waterfall fed lake that gently laps the stone terraces. The soaring glass walls take advantage of the peaceful surroundings from every angle.

Its adjacent vineyards support the belief that it is vital to grow only those varieties of grapes which are best suited to the particular aspect of the land: such as soil, exposure and climate. That is why the Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah and Merlot are planted in the winery’s sloping vineyards. These varietals make up our sought after Heritage Selection.

Our Signature Selection wines are made from grapes purchased from the highly recognized vineyards adjoining the Bianchi estate and from other premium growers in and around Paso Robles and the Central Coast. Our long and close relationship with the best growers assures us access to each harvest’s top quality grapes. Our Signature selection comprise of Edna Valley Chardonnay, Paso Robles Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.

Thereafter, among other awards, the 1985 Meeker Zin was a Wine Spectator “Best Buy”, the 1986 Zin was a “Spectator Selection”, and the 1990 Zin was included among the Wine Spectator’s “100 Best Wines of the World”. During this period Charlie was also honored to present a Meeker Zinfandel at one of the famous Windows on the World wine dinners in New York. And Zinfandel wasn’t the winery’s only success – for example, the Spectator gave a 91 to one of Charlie’s early Chardonnays.

Talamonti

, Italy

Talamonti was founded in 2001 by the Di Tonno family, in a magnificent, unspoiled part of the Abruzzi. Our daily objective lies in constantly seeking the best interaction between the varietal in our vineyards, the sun-exposition, the training method, and the desired yield, with the sole desire to best express our unique terroir.

Talamonti vineyards at the turn of the century have expanded to 32 hectares in production in the municipality of Loreto Aprutino. In addition to the native Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, other varietals have been planted. Pecorino, for example was planted in 2004 as part of an estate experiment to study the ability of other varieties to adapt and express themselves. Our vineyards circumnavigate our winery and are located at 300 meters above sea level with South East exposure in the Tavo Valley region.

Franco Serra

, Italy

Franco Serra is produced by the Sperone family who have been making affordable premium wines for four generations. In 1920, Antonio Sperone opened a small wine shop in Torino where he sold bulk wine directly to consumers. Unsatisfied with the quality and price of the local wine, Antonio started his own winery in Puglia where land was inexpensive and produced good wine. He built a bottling facility in Torino and was soon able to offer his customers quality wines at prices everyone could afford. Sadly, it was destroyed when the city was bombed in WWII. The winery in Puglia survived the war and enabled Antonio’s grandson Giacomo to open a new facility near Milan where he produced vermouth, sparkling wines, spirits and fine wines. With the help of his sons Paolo and Antonio, the company grew quickly and achieved distribution throughout Italy and expanded into foreign markets. In 1965, the family purchased 75 acres of prime vineyards in Piedmont and built a new winery in the small town of Mombaruzzo just outside Monferrato.  In 2006, brother and sister Andrea and Francesca became the 4th Sperone generation to join the company.  Even as prices fetched for wines from this increasingly fashionable region continue to climb, the Sperone family proudly focuses on value.  Franco Serra provides everyone with the opportunity to drink thoughtfully crafted, distinctive wines from Italy’s most renowned region.

Contratto

, Italy

Contratto was founded in 1867 by Giuseppe Contratto and the winery is known as the oldest producer of sparkling wine in Italy. In fact, the “Metodo Classico” 1919 Contratto Extra Brut was the first vintage sparkling wine ever made in the country.

The winery has a long, distinguished history. At the turn of the 20th century, its wines were leaving Canelli for destinations all over the world (predominantly to royal houses), and Contratto was the personal supplier to the Vatican as well as to the Italian Royal Family. Awards and medals from international exhibitions and contests of the time emphasize why the name of Contratto has long been synonymous with prestige and quality in the world of sparkling wine.

Pellegrini Wine Company

California, USA

Family owned for four generations, Pellegrini Wine Company at Olivet Lane Vineyard is located in the Russian River Valley. The Pellegrini family name has been associated with every tier of the wine business since the early part of the 20th Century, from grape sellers to a wholesale wine distribution company.

In 1973, the Pellegrini’s purchased a 70-acre apple, plum & olive orchard on West Olivet Road in Santa Rosa. They planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, developing one of the first vineyards in the region devoted exclusively to these two varieties—which would become known as the Olivet Lane Vineyard, named after the 120 olive trees which line the vineyard’s east entrance. It was one of the first Pinot Noir estates in the Russian River Valley, and over the years has been the grape source for many of the Valley’s Pinot Noir luminaries, in addition to the family’s own award-winning Olivet Lane Vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir production.

Today, Olivet Lane is home to Pellegrini Wine Company’s state-of-the-art Tuscan styled winery, which opened its doors in 2001. Along with winemaker, Lynn Krausmann, we employ old-world artisan winemaking methods to craft the very best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Sonoma County. Quality & unadorned terroir is of our utmost priority in every bottle.

Domaine Bousquet

Mendoza, Argentina

THE STORY

The Bousquet family hail from the city of Carcassonne, in the South of France and have 4 generations of history in the winemaking tradition. Our passion is to produce wines of superior quality and this is what lead us to Argentina to begin a new chapter in the tradition of our wine making.

In 1990, the Bousquet family arrived in Mendoza to investigate the vineyards and wineries. We discovered that the region had unique characteristics including the soil, altitude and terroir. Because of these characteristics and qualities, we knew we had found the ideal location for a winery.

In 1997, a parcel of land was purchased and we relocated from France to the foothills of the Andes. The 110 hectares parcel is located in the Gualtallary valley in Tupungato, Mendoza at an altitude of 1200 meters (4,000 feet), making it one of the higher altitude vineyards in Mendoza and the world. With cool nights and a near constant breeze, the vineyard is located in a region with the idyllic conditions to produce ripe grapes and extraordinary wines.

Another unique characteristic of the region is the low amount of rainfall (approximately 20cm a year). This allows us to control the watering of the grapes via a drip irrigation system. The same water that we use on our vines is bottled and sold locally and is one of Argentina’s most popular bottled waters. The quality of the water and our ability to control the watering regime assists in producing grapes with a lower pH which in turn produces wonderfully balanced wines with great color.

The objective of the Bousquet family was to unite our tradition of European wine making with the ideal agricultural conditions in Mendoza. The result of this union are extraordinary wines that boast incredible color, delicious fruity character, good structure with ripe tannins and perfect acid balance.

Our young wines age gracefully and continue to receive accolades in the International Wine Press. They can be found in over 50 countries around the world.

A history that goes back fifty years which has lead its protagonist on a life-long rewarding journey:
Dorino Livon, has indeed become one of the most successful and well recognised Friulan winemakers.
A life-long story that has its roots in the family’s passion and traditions: a true love for the homeland, Friuli or better the Collio and the Colli Orientali del Friuli, the far north-eastern corner of Italy and gateway to Eastern Europe.
Dorino Livon acquired his first vineyards on the Collio hills in 1964, and slowly, plot by plot he expands his property establishing the Azienda Agricola Livon estate.

Bodega Viña Nora

Galicia, Spain

The philosophy of the winery is to allow the Albariño grape to achieve maximum expression of its maturity. Although Albariño is an Atlantic varietal, it loves the sun. The grape only reaches its maximum potential when it is harvested fully ripe. This is achieved in this part of the appellation by careful vineyard and vine management, leaf control, and very detailed selection of grapes. It is a great gamble to keep the grapes on the vine as long as possible to maximize maturity because of the constant threat of the inevitable autumn rains.

“Finca Grande” (Viña Nora), is per tradition the first harvest in Rias Baixas but this is not the case for Nora, since we look for an extra of quality in terms of the ripening point of the fruit. For Nora vineyards from the property are used. The grapes for this wine come from 48 acres of 20-year-old vineyards which yield 2.5-2.9 t/acre, in the town of As Neves, which is in the sub region of Condado Do Tea on the banks of the Miño River.

Cantine Francesco Montagna

Lombardy, Italy

Since 1895 Cantine Francesco Montagna has been transforming grapes into wine with the same passion. The wine estate boasts more than a century of history in Broni, an ancient village with a great wine-making tradition, situated in the center of one of the territories that produces universally esteemed red and white wines.

When it comes to making wine, Cantine Francesco Montagna is guided by one simple principle: to allow the terroir of its vineyards to express themselves. The starting point is the careful selection of the most suitable grapes coming from the vineyards of 40 winegrowers for a total area of 150 hectars. Today as in the past, an ongoing commitment focused on making the traditional wines of the Oltrepò Pavese known everywhere.
The winery produce 4 lines of wines, each of them has its own character and personality.

Bosco Del Merlo

Veneto, Italy

Bosco del Merlo lies in a land that is historically recognized to be the birthplace of great wines.
Wine tradition here goes back to ancient roman times and Bosco del Merlo vineyards stay between two consular streets: Via Annia and Via Postumia.

Our vines enjoy the breezes coming from the Adriatic sea and also the Dolomitic Alps influence. This peculiar microclimate ensures good temperature excursions that we know are good for the vine, because this plant gives its best fruits when stressed.

The soil is characterized from the “caranto” (from the late latin “caris” that means “stone”). It is a stratification typical of the venetian area, giving extraordinary and unique properties to the grapes.
That is why our wines, from the sauvignon blanc to the lison classico, from the merlot to the cabernet, are all unmistakable.

Jules Taylor Wines

Marlborough, New Zealand
Jules and viticulturist, Jeremy Hyland, have used their not inconsiderable knowledge of the region to find those small parts of vineyards that will produce the grapes and the flavour profiles that they are looking for. But as much as seeking special bits of land, and grapes, they also look very much for relationships. The relationships that they have with their winegrowers are very important. They want people who care about what they produce. Good relationships produce good grapes. And it’s good grapes that make the best wines.

Paladin

Veneto, Italy
Paladin vineyards, which look like beautiful gardens, are immersed in the harmonious rural landscape recalling ancient traditions and cultures.
The estate extends between Eastern Veneto and Friuli with almost 100 hectares of green vineyards. This is a territory in which viticulture and enology enjoy an ancient and renowned tradition.
In this area the love for wine and viticulture date back at least to the Roman age: in the first century a.d. Plinio used to describe this rich area as a wide vineyard and used to describe the ships which, full of wine amphoras, sailed from the Adriatic ports to Rome. Centuries later, the Republic of Venice used to import the “noble drink”, object of trade exchanges all over its dominion.
Finds testifying the ancient production of wine in this territory were found in our vineyards in Lison.

Chateau Saint-Pierre

CÔTES DE PROVENCE, France

As far as we know, the château Saint Pierre domaine dates back to the eleventh century. Recent rehabilitation work in the cellar has turned up vestiges of a church dedicated to Saint Pierre that had belonged to foulques, the lord of les Arcs. This priory and the land around it were bequeathed to the Saint Victor Abbey in 1055, and later became a country estate belonging to the les Arcs parish.

Handed down from father to son for the past four generations, the château’s vineyards of mostly noble grape varieties (AOC designation of origin) currently comprise 55 hectares that stretch from the Argens River up to the foot of the Maures mountain range. At Château Saint Pierre, we are ever attentive to the extreme importance of the local soil and have always maintained natural methods of cultivation that allow the vines to produce their best.

Novelty Hill and Januik are two independent wineries that share a destination tasting room and production facility in Woodinville, Wash. under the direction of Mike Januik, one of Washington State’s most acclaimed winemakers.

The partnership began in 2000, shortly after Mike met Novelty Hill’s owners Tom Alberg and Judi Beck and began consulting on the planting of a new vineyard, later to be named Stillwater Creek.  Being a vintner, Mike couldn’t imagine owning grapes without making wine.  It didn’t take much to convince Tom and Judi; later that year, they established Novelty Hill with Mike at the winemaking helm. After crushing two vintages in Walla Walla, the operation moved to Woodinville’s warehouse district in 2002 before putting down roots in 2007 in the stylish, modern state-of-the-art facility the two wineries share today.

Veneto, Italy
Passion and tradition, research and innovation, handed down from father to son for over 145 years: this is Carpene Malvolti, the first company to submit quality Prosecco to the sparkling process, and a brand that is a leader in this field both in Italy and abroad. It was founded in 1868 by Antonio Carpene, who dreamt to produce a bubbly wine with the grapes harvested from the hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. This dream has become a mission: producing high quality sparkling wine at each grape harvest. A dream that is still coming true today, day after day.

Domaine d'Orfeuilles

Loire, France

Located on the old outbuilding of a medieval castle that no longer exits, the Domaine d’Orfeuilles was founded in 1947 by Paul HERIVAULT. The “Vouvray Appellation Controlée” vineyard now covers almost 20 hectares in the communes of Chançay and Reugny.

This vineyard is now cultivated by Bernard HERIVAULT and his son Arnaud. They make every effort to maintain the traditions in the cultivation of the vines as well as in production of their wines.

The Chenin variety is grown on clayey, clay-limestone soil with a high density of flint stone. This situation, specific for our vineyard, gives our wines an unmistakable characteristic: the famous “flinty taste”.

We produce sparkling wines with the traditional method and still wines that, depending on the year’s climate can be dry, medium dry, sweet and sometimes liqueur-like in the case of certain vintages. The average production consists of about 1100 hl per year.

Domaine Denis Carre

Burgundy, France

Situated in Meloisey in the Haut Cotes, this family Domaine in its present shape was created in 1975 by Denis Carre and has over the years grown to an estate of 13 Hectares (33 acres) with some 13 different appellations. Denis’ children, Gaetane & Martial have been involved in the vineyards since a young age and in 2008 both joined the family business full-time. The Domaine now receives the high accolades by top wine journals in France such as the Guide Hachette, and is noted for consistent high quality.

The vineyard work is meticulous and while not organic, “la lute raisonnee” is followed – in other words as organic as reasonably possible. The soil is worked and aerated, deleafing is done manually and the yield is constantly surveyed and measures taken to keep the volume well below maximum tolerances. Harvesting is entirely by hand, with small caissonsrates used to make sure that the whole bunches oxidize as little as possible before proceeding to the winery, where severe sorting takes place. Vinification is in French oak and will last for 10-15 months, followed by Domaine controlled bottling.

Domaine Gerard Tremblay

Burgundy, France

Gérard Tremblay, his wife, Hélène, and their son Vincent oversee a domaine that they inherited down a line of five generations. With 35 hectares of vines under production, most of them in the best Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations, their Chablis range is among the most prestigious in the region. Gérard is justly famous for his ability to draw out the typicity of each of his distinct appellations, beautifully expressing the terroir vintage after vintage.

All of their wine is made from their own fruit. Grapes from 15 hectares of 20 year-old Chablis vines are vinified and matured in stainless steel. The grapes from the 40 year-old Premier Cru Montmains is treated with up to 20% new barrels, and the grapes from the tiny 0.6 hectares of Grand Cru Vaudésir is aged in up to 30% new oak barrels.

The domaine has a superb new winery, providing excellent conditions to bring out the quality of the fruit that these vineyards produce. Grapes are brought directly from the fields and put into pneumatic presses. The juice is then left to settle for more than twelve hours before being fermented in stainless steel. The entire work at the winery is done by gravity, avoiding unnecessary manipulations of the fruit or pumping of juices.

Italo Cescon

Veneto, Italy

Every wine is influenced by the background and the atmosphere in which it matures and that’s why, as we have learned thanks to ancient cellarmen and our father Italo Cescon, we give our wines all the time that they need to mature into our modern and functional cellar next to our headquarters in Roncadelle, Treviso, that consists of:

A repart for vinification in which there are the steel tanks for fermentation and stockpiling, with automatic device for temperature control and for sur-lie practice during maturation time, both for red and white wines.

An elevation cellar with Slavonia wood barrels, oaken barriques and tonneaux selected for us by an expert French cooper. The passage in wood allows the wine to take advantage of all those substances which, together with the constant micro aeration typical of the storage place, determine the enrichment of its bouquet and the achievement of an ideal aromatic and organoleptic complexity.

Refinement in bottles concludes the wine’s maturation. It completes its evolution becoming more refined from the olfactory and tasting point thanks to the controlled temperature that permits to wines to reach their optimal equilibrium.

Hervé Joyaux Fabre, owner and director of Fabre Montmayou, was born in Bordeaux, France to a family of wine negociants. When Herve Joyaux Fabre arrived in Argentina in the early 90’s looking for opportunities to invest in vineyards and start a winery, he was impressed by the potential for Malbec in Mendoza. Within months he purchased the first of several old vine, high elevation vineyard sites under his control – an impeccable 37 acre spread in Vistalba planted with original rootstock Malbec vines in 1908. A pioneering Patagonian winery was constructed in the Rio Negro region ten years later. At present the family owns 217 acres of vineyard land in Mendoza (Vistalba, Compuertas, Tupungato) and 122 acres in Patagonia (Allen, General Roca). All wines are estate grown, farmed using traditional methods without the use of herbicides and pesticides, and fermented with native yeasts.

Domaine Parent

Burgundy, France

Domaine Parent, located in Pommard, in the heart of Côte d’Or, is today run by Anne Parent and her sister Catherine Fages-Parent, representing the 12th generation, and perpetuating a family tradition dating back to the 17th century.
In 1787, Etienne Parent had friendly and professional connections with Thomas Jefferson who was to become the 3rd President of the United States. He then became a forerunner of Burgundy wine exportations across the Atlantic.
At the beginning of 19th century, Claude Parent left Volnay, the family cradle, to settle in Pommard and to build Domaine Parent in 1803.
In 1947, Jacques Parent, then 19 years old, began working with his father Maxime. He then took over the management of the Domaine in 1953, and triggered an innovative impetus. Indeed, Domaine Parent was one of the first estates of Côte d’Or which sold all its production in bottles, in France on the best tables of French gastronomy, and overseas as well.
Jacques Parent’s will to work and ensure the continued existence of this family property allowed him to pass on the family estate calmly to his two daughters Anne and Catherine in 1998.

Domaine Francois Lamarche

Burgundy, France

“Domaine Lamarche was established 1797 on the prestigious terroirs of Vosne-Romanée and Vougeot. Lamarche produces fourteen different wines, most notably La Grande Rue, a monopole of the Estate and one of the rare grands crus of Vosne-Romanée. The Lamarche Estate, which now boasts a total surface area of nearly 28 acres, is a family Estate, whose origin goes back several generations. Last year Francois Lamarche, the owner of the Estate and la Grand Rue, died in a tractor accident working his vineyards. The estate remains in the capable hands of three women; his daughter Nicole, sister Genevieve and niece Nathalie, all of whom had been working with him in the vineyards and cellars for many years. We often talk about the hard work and sacrifice that winegrowers make to produce some of the finest wines in the world. This event reminds us that the life of the vigneron can be not only hard, but dangerous work as well. We honor all of the growers that give so much to produce great wine.

Domaine Meo Camuzet

Burgundy, France

“One of the best known symbols of Burgundy, Domaine Méo-Camuzet was founded at the beginning of the last century by Étienne Camuzet (member for 30 years of the French Parliament). Mr. Camuzet slowly built the Estate by purchasing some of Burgundy’s most exceptional vineyards, most notably in the Clos de Vougeot. As of 1985, the estate began selling under its own label, directly from the cellars. All the appellations of the domain are harvested and vinified by Meo Camuzet. Jean-Nicolas Méo is in charge of the Estate. Henri Jayer advises him on winemaking and Christian Faurois is vineyard manager.

Chateau de la Maltroye

Burgundy, France

Situated in Chassagne-Montrachet in the south of the Côte d’Or, Château de la Maltroye has been a family property since 1939. It is easily recognizable by its 18th century, glazed tile roof. The chateau also possesses superb cellars from the 15th century. The vineyard encompasses over 13 hectares in the appellation Chassagne-Montrachet and 2 hectares in Santenay. The domain produces around 70,000 bottles per year, 60% white and 40% red and uses traditional Burgundy grape varieties – Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Jean-Pierre Cornut, the current wine-grower, has magnificently reinvigorated this domain which now produces some of the best Chassagne-Montrachet on the market.

Chateau Goudichaud

Bordeaux, France

It is in 1930 that the Glotin family purchased the domaine, and Henriette Glotin ran it for 40 years. She was one of the first woman winemakers and she devoted herself passionately to the domaine.

Then Paul extended the estate to restore its original surface, broken up through the centuries.

Today, Yves runs Goudichaud in the same spirit of respect for the traditions and of development.

The estate covers 120 hectares, composed of vineyards (60 Ha), forests and grasslands. It has the particularity to represent a continuous precinct with natural boundaries (river and forest).

Hence the charm of this space, protected by nature and evolving with respect for it.

Champagne Bruno Paillard

Champagne, France

Maison Bruno Paillard sprang from its founder’s desire to create a champagne different from any other; extremely pure.

A great champagne for Bruno Paillard is – above all – an “assemblage”, blending: of diverse crus, grape varieties and vintages. It is about the constant desire to capture the quintessential finesse and elegance which champagne can bring when it is served with love and care.

Its style is a marriage of elegance and complexity which is manifested as a light and smooth effervescence, a remarkable purity, a true freshness and a silky texture.

Ancient Peaks

California, USA

Ancient Peaks represents the shared vision of three longtime local winegrowing and ranching families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms. Two generations are actively involved in the winery’s daily operations, all dedicated to producing extraordinary wines from Margarita Vineyard. In 2005, the three families acquired ownership and control of the Margarita Vineyard which stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, tucked beneath the peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean.
