SPAIN : NUMANTHIA

Sep 7, 2018 12:13:00 PM | By Ponti Wine Cellars

Founded in 1998, Bodega Numanthia, located in Valdefinjas, Castile and León, in the Northwest of Spain, is a veritable emblem of the Toro region wines. Bodega Numanthia is living tribute to the fearless warriors of Numancia in Spain, whose inhabitants heroically resisted the Roman army for 20 years in 134 B.C. and finally preferred to sacrifice their lives rather than surrender.

This resilience is also found in the Toro wines in a region with longstanding traditions in winemaking and viticulture. These vineyards were planted by pioneer families centuries ago, back in roman times and since then, they have shown resilience surviving the phylloxera plague during the XIXth century and the extreme climate conditions typical of the region year after year. During the Middle ages, Toro wines were also the first in the world to travel to the Americas, carried on Christopher Columbus’ ships in 1492.Read More

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
