BURGUNDY : MARK HAISMA

Oct 1, 2018 12:13:00 PM | By Ponti Wine Cellars

From Down Under to Burgundy

Former winemaker at Yarra Yering, now crafting acclaimed Burgundies and Northern Rhone wines, and recently featuring in Tim Atkin MW’s 25 producers to watch.

Mark chooses parcels of vines which he hand selects based on the quality of the site, the rigour of the grower’s viticulture and the health of the fruit. He has built up trusted relationships with vigneromes which allows him the choicest selection of their grapes and his own team of pickers ensure the fruit is harvested and transported speedily and in the best condition to the winery. Away from the Domaines, in Burgundy’s far from transparent grape-buying underworld, such attention to detail and commitment to quality is very rare.

USA: Heitz Cellars

Jan 12, 2017 12:13:30 PM | By Ponti Wine Cellars

When Heitz Cellars opened in 1961, the Napa Valley had fewer than twenty wineries. Today there are more than two hundred. The home property was originally developed as a vineyard and winery in the 1880s by the Swiss-Italian family of Anton Rossi. The beautiful old stone cellar built in 1898 has made the transition through time and the Heitz family continues to age fine wines within, carrying on the tradition of the art of fine wine making in the Napa Valley.Read More

USA: Chateau Montelena

Jan 12, 2017 12:05:44 PM | By Ponti Wine Cellars

Chateau Montelena's rich history began on a chilly fall morning when Alfred L. Tubbs spaded over and inspected the soil where he thought of planting estate vineyards. He'd heard the Napa Valley was the best place to grow grapes in California. A deal was struck and in January of 1882 the San Francisco entrepreneur owned 254 acres of rugged land just two miles north of Calistoga at the base of Mount Saint Helena. The soils are well drained, stony and loose – perfect for the vine cuttings he would plant.Read More

USA: Shafer Vineyards

Jan 12, 2017 11:48:04 AM | By Ponti Wine Cellars

Shafer is the poster boy for impeccable wine quality year in and year out, offering examples of what a high quality, creative winery is capable of achieving even when vintage conditions are challenging. Since 1991, this has been the uncontested superstar of the Stags Leap appellation, and readers are unlikely to find a better Cabernet Sauvignon than Shafer’s Hillside Select, a better North Coast Syrah … than their Relentless, or a finer non-malolactic Chardonnay than their Red Shoulder Ranch. All of this is due to the extraordinary team of winemaker/vineyard manager Elias Fernandez and father and son, John and Doug Shafer.Read More
