Angoris Villa Locatelli

Angoris was founded in 1648 when the Emperor of Austria Ferdinand III donates 300 fields with one of the most fertile soils to officer Locatello Locatelli for merits gained during battle in the Thirty-Year War. From this time on the quiet woods, green hills and gentle vineyards of the Angoris estate became a retreat for royalty from throughout the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The Villa Locatelli, which still dominates the estate, became a symbol of quality and hospitality and the wines that came from the estate made their way throughout the royal courts of Europe.

 

Over three centuries have passed and the Tenuta Angoris, one of the most prestigious Friulian wineries from time immemorial, is today managed with renewed enthusiasm and the entrepreneurial spirit of another Locatelli family.

Domaine De La Motte

The story begins in the 1960’s in the heart of the Chablis vineyard thanks to Henri Michaut who takes care of the fields, the cows and the vineyard at the same time. At that time, the vineyard represented 2 hectares. His three sons Jean, Christian & Bernard joined him in turn, starting with Jean in 1970, followed by Bernard in 1974 and Christian in 1990. At the same time, Claude Robin also joined the adventure alongside the Michaut brothers in the 1980s for several years, as did Guillaume Michaut, son of Christian, in 2005.

From the 1970s onwards, the Michaut family’s harvest was sold to the “La Chablisienne” cooperative cellar. This is a group of winegrowers who produce and sell wine made from the grapes of its members. During the 1990s, the estate grew and now has 25 hectares of vines. The Michaut brothers then decided to develop the sale of bottles from their own vinification. The wines are made and bottled at the estate: a success since in 2011 they leave the cooperative to sell the wines from their own production. Adrien, Bernard’s son, joined the estate in 2010 and is now the sole manager of Domaine de la Motte. Since his arrival, the estate has continued to grow and today represents 53 hectares of vines.

Fire Gully

Fire Gully farm was one of the original group settlement blocks taken up in 1922 in the Willyabrup locality of the Margaret River district. Bill and Kath Butcher took over the farm in 1946 and it was passed on to Ellis and Margaret Butcher in 1971. The property was named Fire Gully after two large bush fires in 1952 and 1970 that ravaged the gully which runs through the central block. The original farming activity on the plot was as a dairy and then as a beef farm. The first vines were planted in 1988 and the plantings extended in 1992 and 1997.

Fire Gully is one of the most beautiful and unique properties in Willyabrup and the range of wines produced from the vines there are truly delightful. The Fire Gully wines express the very essence of Margaret River regionality and quality and are recognised for consistent excellence with each passing vintage.

Fire Gully (Pierro) minimises their long term enviormental impact by using light-weight glass bottles (which reduces their carbon footprint by 44%), recycle winery water/waste and use their sheep for weed management. They prune their vines, sort bunches and sort individual berries (for red wine) all by hand.

“Almost from the very day I started out as a winemaker I’ve reckoned the fruit grown at the Angas family’s Hutton Vale Farm to be up there with the best I’ve seen in the Barossa. It’s the intensity of flavour you taste in the fruit from these vineyards…the incredible structure…that makes them a stand out.

Being given the chance to put my name to wine from vineyards of this calibre is great. But what takes the whole thing to another level is working with people like the Angas family as we put the word out there about these wines.

With great care, he chooses the vineyards, or “fields” which are suitable for the production of high-quality grapes. This is also where the name of the winery comes from, I Campi (meaning, “the Fields”) describing just how it is the land which is the starting point.

Since their first vintage in 2001, they have built together a great group of growers who are committed to their land and to the wines that come from it. They still work with their original vineyard and over the years we have slowly built an understanding of the sites and now see a continuity and typicity in the wines. Mahi sources sustainable fruit and all vineyards that they work with are under the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) programme.

Masseria Setteporte

The winery Masseria Setteporte is located in a very unique place: on the south-western slope of the Sicilian vulcano Etna, in the town of Biancavilla, within the Etna D.O.C. area. Here, viticulture dates back to ancient times. The Portale family, owners of Masseria Setteporte, have passed their winemaking tradition down through generations. The farm was first modernised by Ferdinando Portale who turned the classic bush trained vineyards into a vertical trellis system, which is more suitable for modern growing techniques. In 2002 Piero Portale decided to carry on his father’s project, taking the farm from its original 12 ha to 27 ha, 16.5 of which are already planted with vines.

Michel Guignier

“For me the wine is born in the earth, hence the interest to take great care of the soil. They must be as alive as possible to convey their character. This is the essential starting point for an authentic wine. For me a wine carries a story, I try to give my best at all stages of my work, in a coherence that combines rigor, mastery, respect for natural processes and intuition. The wine is the result, the wine the fruit. I started working my vines in organic farming by choice and personal conviction”.

Michel Guignier is a fourth generation vigneron in Villié Morgon, in the heart of the AOC Morgon appellation in Beaujolais. Guignier follows a traditional vinification “à la Beaujolaise” with no de-stemming and with only indigenous yeasts used for the fermentation. In keeping with his biodynamic practices, Michel prepares huge mounds of compost each year from cow droppings and includes the must of last year’s vintage.

Guignier’s wines display that transparent, ethereal, soil-driven quality that makes naturally-made, top Beaujolais so unique and joyful to drink.

Moscone

Since 1877 Moscone family has been cultivating soils with unique characteristics to obtain healthy grapes of superior quality. Scrupulous care of the vines using only products that respect the biodynamics in our vineyards, long experience and respect of the traditions, are our secrets to achieve elegant wines of exquisite finesse.
They own 20 hectares of vineyards, mainly divided into two areas: the smaller in Roero, where grapes grow in this sandy soil, expressing their delicate notes. The biggest in the south of Langhe area of Monforte d’Alba, where the calcareous soil of fossil origin gives the wines elegance, structure and longevity.

Their flagship is the vineyard in Bussia hill, among the first 2 areas mentioned Cru of Barolo since 1961. Their Barolo and Barolo Bussia originate from it, wines with enormous aging potential.

At the end of 2022 they moved the operational headquarters in La Morra, creating a new, larger and more equipped winery, capable of exploiting the best tools currently available both for the production and for the aging of the wines. Now at the helm of the cellar there are the cousins Sara and Marco Moscone, 4th generation of the family.

Their son Harry planted the first experimental vines back in 1980 and with his wife Val, moved to the property from Melbourne in 1995. Narkoojee had very humble beginnings with the Cellar Door operating out of a small weatherboard bungalow at the back of Harry and Val Friend’s house. The grapes were taken to the old butter factory in Glengarry, which served as their first winery. Today the winery enjoys a five red star status as rated by James Halliday.

Old Plains

The Old Plains Wine Co. was established by Dominec Torzi and Tim Freeland in 2002. ‑their driving ambition was to salvage some of the last remaining old vine vineyards in the Adelaide Plains region of South Australia. These vineyards were generally planted post WWII by Italian migrants & returned servicemen. The vineyards survived intact until the mid ‘80’s when many were uprooted to make way for market gardens, almond orchards and housing. Families generally left and acre or two, or a couple of rows for the family cantina wine, we source fruit from these remnant vineyards and since 2002 have produced a range of shiraz, grenache and cabernet that oozes all the dark fruit flavour that only old vine handmade basket pressed wines can offer. Torzi & Freeland are traditionally taught winemakers, using traditional techniques. Vineyards utilise sustainable growing practices with the fruit hand-picked.

Pierro

The wines of Pierro are the culmination of passion, innovation, location, climate and time. Wherever our wines are enjoyed around the world today they invariably impart a tangible trace of their idyllic place of origin – warm southern climes, ancient soils, healthful vines and years of skilled hands-on viticulture and winemaking.

During his first vintage in Margaret River in 1979, Mike Peterkin introduced two wine styles which have become the mainstay of winemaking in the district: the first Australian semillon sauvignon blanc blend and the first to introduce a touch of cabernet franc and malbec to wines. Just as Pierro personifies life’s intricacies and passions, Pierro wine is a wonderfully complex balance of sensual and fascinating elements. In a world where mediocrity can become a pervasive norm, the wines of Pierro are a shining exception. It is no secret that care, and attention to detail and quality are the primary objectives at Pierro.

Trait Wines is a modern take on the traditional. It is rogue only in its convictions and bold belief in the vineyard. In all other aspects it respects the old world of wine, the old guard of wine, and aspires to tread the same hallowed halls.

The fruit for Trait Wines is sourced from a 2.7 hectare vineyard mere kilometres from Margaret River’s town centre in the south west corner of Western Australia. Planted in 1988, the site is sloping and the vines close-planted, meaning that the aid and intervention of machinery is impossible. Everything requires the touch of hands. Due to the age of the vines, production is not vigorous, hence the quality of the fruit is concentrated and the yields are low.

Utopos

Located on the cusp of Marananga and Greenock, the establishment of Utopos Vineyard began in 1974 on a bed of lean and depleted stoney soils that significantly limits yield. This outstanding geology allows us to grow cracking concentrated yet balanced grapes on these shallow, ancient soils – fruit that was traditionally sent to the corporate end of town, where the small crop of coveted fruit oft found its way into their icon wines. A hallmark of the Utopos Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road is the pitch perfect acid/ tannin balance we can achieve in fully ripened fruit. This provides for delicious, highly approachable wines in their youth, whilst enabling them to develop over a 10-15 year period, and maybe more.

Planted to Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Mataro, we’re focusing on those varietals the Barossa Valley grows best and is widely renowned for. The Utopos wines are distinctly Barossan with the depth and concentration that you expect from Marananga and Greenock but have that site driven savoury balance that I always long for.

We have named the vineyard UTOPOS, the root word of utopia. Perhaps it means Eutopos – a good and perfect place. I figure that this is what we are all often chasing – the dream of another world far removed from the day to day grind. Or perhaps it means Outopos – a place that cannot be, one that is just out of reach. Often what people find at the end of their journey in this game. I’m pretty confident that we’ve found Eutopos not Outopos… In keeping with our ideals, our range of wines is succinct and produced solely from fruit grown on our Utopos Vineyard.

Anne Collard, who runs the Château Mourgues du Grès with her husband Francois, always wanted to have vines in the Côtes du Rhône. In 2019, she found a great site just six kilometers north of Mourgues du Grès that was everything she was looking for. She purchased 30 hectares in Comps, a Côtes du Rhône Villages, which is in the confluence of the Rhône River, on a north-facing hillside. They mostly have Grenache, along with Mourvèdre and Carignan. Comps is the southernmost village in the Côtes du Rhône appellation and it’s a particularly windy area, convenient for organic agriculture. The soil is very rocky, with steep slopes. Anne’s son manages the vineyards, and they began immediately to convert to organic and biodynamic farming. The wines are made at Mourgues du Grès, in a new part of the cellar, in new tanks. They are not using any sulfites during winemaking or aging, and the fermentations start spontaneously with indigenous yeasts. The wines are made in concrete vats that are not epoxy lined and the wines stay in the same cement tank until they are bottled, generally after about eight to twelve months of aging. They are making two cuvées, a Côtes du Rhône and a Côtes du Rhône “Aube” that is made with the oldest vines, fifty years-old average. 2020 was an excellent vintage and the first to be released. Total production is about 12,500 cases. The wines are distinctly elegant, juicy, and mineral with freshness.

Vocoret Et Fils

The Vocoret family is one of the oldest families in Chablis, with all generations of the family having been born in the heart of the old village of Chablis. Founded by Edouard Vocoret in 1870, Domaine Vocoret et Fils, a family business for four generations, has always strived to perpetuate and develop the vineyard with, as the primary objective, respect for the terroir and constant improvement. Wine making and production has remained traditional with the use of large wooden foudres during ageing, while bottling is carried out exclusively at the property.

Wood Park / Wild’s Gully

Environmental scientist John Stokes planted his Wood Park vineyard in the foothills of the Victorian Alps in 1989. Driven by a passion for the environment John has reinvigorated Wood Park through a mix of re-forestation, erosion control and improved biodiversity. The vineyard is managed with a commitment to minimal chemical use. John’s wine making is a mix of traditional and modern techniques including plenty of hand plunging in open fermenters and use of wild yeasts.
