Pinon Damien Vouvry Frankrijk France wine

Pinon - France

Damien and Ingrid Pinon are both one team as well as winemakers as in daily life. Among them, the domain was completely modernized and given a contemporary style. The vineyards are 100% Chenin Blanc planted for both foam and still wines and have been organically farmed for over 10 years. This includes avoiding chemical fertilizers and sprays, plowing natural vegetation between the rows to promote the balance of the local flora and fauna, etc. However, this organic method has never been endorsed with a certified label. Since 2020, work has also been done on this and an official certificate is pending. One of the great assets of Vouvray is the rather unique subsoil of a specific type of limestone and millennia-old remains of crustaceans called Tuffeau. This geological layer dates back to Turoon, so named because this geological timeline is most visible near the city of Tours. It guarantees one of the best expressions of Chenin anywhere in the world. The beautiful cellar of the domain, where the wines ferment and mature, was completely hewn from this lime layer.

Catalina Sounds New Zealand wines

Catalina Sounds - New Zealand

Catalina Sounds was founded in 2005 by Matt Ward and Fraser Brown. Their ambition is simple and clear: to make Marlborough's best wines. Matt is the winemaker and got his knowledge in New Zealand's most renowned estates (Mahi Wines, Seresin Estate and Wither Hills) as well as making wines in Meursault, Oregon and the Palatinate in Germany. Fraser knows better than anyone the needs and requirements of the vineyard itself that are needed to get the very best out of the grapes. Together they form a team where each excels in perfection in his field. For them, balance is the basis of any wine that should be a natural reflection of its specific terroir. For a young wine estate like Catalina Sounds, the achievements are already impressive. Where they now have the best vineyards in Marlborough, there was nothing 15 years ago. The name of the domain is a tribute to the famous flying boats (or seaplanes) named Catalina.

With Crowded House and Totara, Matt Ward and Fraser Brown (Catalina Sounds) launched 2 other brands that guarantee typical New Zealand and quality wines.

Meanwhile, they are far from alone here and others also discovered the enormous quality that this place has to offer. It is as they say themselves: “In the beginning, when we arrived here, we were still alone and brave, or maybe even stupid, but now we are with many others and we can really call it our home here… Our densely populated house.

Coral Duero - Spain

Coral Duero was founded in 2003 by Jesus Fernandez. He was a 'visionary' who had earned his stripes in the maritime world. By buying Coral Duero and also some of the oldest vineyards in Toro, he pushed the limits with the ultimate ambition of 'Making the best wine of Toro!' Most grapes grow on their original vines and were spared from the phylloxera. Coral refers to its maritime past and Duero is a tribute to the river of the same name that flows as a lifeline through the inhospitable landscape of Toro. The first awards came fairly quickly and Robert Parker also honored the 'Rompesedas' with 93 points. Meanwhile, Jesus passed the torch to a young team of talented managers and winemakers. They build on his dream and make Coral Duero one of the ultimate taste experiences of the Toro appellation.

Domaine Passy le Clou - France

Domaine Patrice was founded in 1950 by the father of Gérard and Christian Patrice. The land with grain was switched to grape-growing and the accommodations to wine-growing in general. It was mainly Gérard who took care of the growing wine section. The available land in Petit Chablis, Chablis and Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy was initially worked for the Cave Coopérative, but in the early 2000s all installations were purchased to enable the transition to the production of high-quality Chablis wines. In the first years, the wines were still sold to Negociants, but since 2017 Domaine Passy Le Clou became a fact and the wines are marketed under their own name and management. From its first year on, the domain has garnered rave reviews from many wine fanatics, won the necessary prizes and immediately settled among the better producers of the appellation. They stand for sustainable viticulture with great respect for nature and in 2019 obtained the certificate: “Haute Valeur Environnementale”. The future therefore smiles broadly and radiantly at Passy Le Clou.

Pandora - Spain

This extremely modern and innovative bodega from Rueda excels at combining old classic wine processes with the latest technological innovations in the wine field. They have different fermentation vats, in stainless steel, wood and cement. There is also an extensive variation in size and shape. This makes it possible to monitor and improve the quality at every moment of the production process and to achieve a separate and optimal vinification for each variety and vineyard.

In addition, they have a variety of vineyards and terroirs that are among the best in Rueda. The wines are aged on their lees to increase quality and storage power. By using egg-shaped cement yeast vats, the micro-oxygen uptake is increased, which in turn makes the wines more lively and interesting. In other words Bodegas Pandora represents, just like in Greek mythology, all the acquired virtues of the gods such as beauty, strength, knowledge, dexterity, persuasiveness… And last of all, curiosity. If you want to enjoy yourself, don't let this Pandora box pass you by.

Florie - France

Florie is a brand from the winery 'Les Vignerons du Roy René' which is founded in 1922, was named after one of the most beloved kings of France. King René lived close to the common people and was known as a generous and good man who like to share his time with the average man, participated in parties and tournaments and thus when one of the few kings conquered a place in the heart of the Provencal people. The cave uses the strictest standards of the region and all vineyards must obtain a certificate from the Chamber of Agriculture that guarantees respectful and environmentally friendly viticulture (culture raisonnée). For example, they often apply stricter standards than many individual winegrowers, and several of their wines are voted the best in the region year after year. The vineyards are also subdivided according to location, soil and quality and thus guarantee that a maximum level per wine can also be achieved in the bottle and that each bottle can be traced up to the vineyard. They also link a more than fair price to their different wines which absolutely cannot be said of some so-called "big" names in Provence and some film stars settled there.

Lamborghini - Italy

In the 1960s, Ferruccio Lamborghini, later better known as a world-famous car manufacturer, purchased the beautiful domain, which is situated south of Lake Trasimeno. As he traveled through the region, he fell in love with the beautiful hilly landscape and after his career as a tractor builder and wagon constructor, he decided to return to his roots and devote himself fully to viticulture as the son of farmers. The vineyards are in Umbria but only a few km from Cortona, the most southern appellation of Tuscany. In the 1990s, daughter, Patrizia took over the domain and further strengthened her father's ambition by modernising and enlisting the help of one of Italy's most talented and renowned winemakers, Riccardo Cotarella, nicknamed "The Wizard". He makes top wines from local grapes such as Sangiovese and Montepulciano like no other and mixes them with international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. International wine critics such as James Suckling and Robert Parker love it anyway and give these blends absolute top scores in their wine ratings. Another small and fun anecdote that Ferruccio Lamborghini completely draws: When Ferruccio, being a farmer and specialised in building tractors and other agricultural vehicles, but full of admiration for beautiful sports cars like Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari himself pointed out that the bodywork of his cars was not calculated on the power of his engines, Enzo Ferrari replied that he might have known how to drive a tractor but missed any knowledge of sports cars! ...

Antoine de la Farge - France

Antoine's grandfather, Gerard Clément, was one of the most respected winemakers in the region and one of the founders of the 'Menetou-Salon' appellation. He is still present on the domain and for Antoine he was and still is his great inspiration and example. He started his career in a wine shop and later became a wine buyer for one of France's largest wine merchants. Here he was given the opportunity to expand his knowledge enormously and gain international experience (ex. in Australia). After 12 years of experience, he returned to the domain in 2012 to put all that experience into practice. As a winemaker, Antoine feels like a conductor who transforms the soil into music. Every wine must be a natural reflection of its soil and requires sustainable agriculture to achieve this. The winegrower is the cement between the grape variety and the final wine. He does not want to manipulate the wine, but only to accompany it gently. That is why all grapes are picked by hand, only gravity is used and no yeasts are added to get the fermentation going. His wines therefore constantly win prizes.
