Angas Brut. Its name, consistency and tradition of quality make it one of the most popular sparkling wines in the world. Angas Brut was created in the mid 1980s, and since then the intention has been to provide maximum flavour and quality at an affordable price. Bottle fermentation and the classic grape varieties of Champagne - Pinot Noir and Chardonnay - have given Angas Brut complexity and freshness with a fine bead and creaminess on the palate.

Ata Rangi

Ata Rangi is owned and run by Clive Paton and his wife Phyll, together with Cliveís sister Alison and winemaker Helen Masters. Clive planted the bare, stony 12-acre home paddock at the edge of Martinborough in 1980 and, in doing so, was one of a handful of people who pioneered grape growing in the area.

Champagne Bollinger was founded in 1829, and is still 100% family owned today. Somewhat unusual for a Champagne House, Bollinger have been growers and producers from the outset. 70% of Bollinger's grape supply comes from its own vineyards. This is a minimum, set out in Bollinger's Charter of Ethics and Quality, which was published in 1992. This Charter confirms the House's commitment to true standards of excellence, and reinforces their stubborn determination to maintain those standards that have made Bollinger a watchword for the quality of Champagne.

Brokenwood

Charles Smith - USA Washington

Winemaking is the new rock and roll. Or in Charles Smith’s case it is the new Danish Thrash Metal. Charles spent a decade in Europe managing various bands you’ll never have heard of (unless you misspent your youth in disused warehouses near the Copenhagen ring road) before seeing the light and heading to Washington State to plant vines. Fast-forward a dozen vintages or so and Charles still has the hair, the t-shirts and the attitude of his music days but has replaced the guitar pick for a corkscrew and the Jack Daniels for some supremely elegant Riesling and Syrah.


Chase - England Herefordshire



Chereau Carre - France Loire

The Chereau family can trace their history in the Muscadet area all the way back to 1412. However, the business only really took off after the Second World War with the purchase of more vineyards and the Chateau de Chasseloir property which still houses the cellars. The family have a reputation for producing outstanding wines packed with classic Muscadet character: dry, crisp and fresh with a fresh bite of lemon and just a hint of richness from the sur lie ageing.

Citadelle

Citadelle - Spirits & Liqueurs Gin

Citadelle gin is now produced in Cognac, the birthplace of another fine spirit. As it was produced in the 17th century, Citadelle gin is distilled in small copper pot stills with a naked flame.

Clay Station

Clay Station - USA California

Part of the DFV group. During the mid-1990s, the Indelicato family sought the perfect place to try something new. After 75 years of growing grapes in Northern California, they knew that they wanted to stay close to home, and unfailingly visited every piece of land that came up for sale. When they stepped onto Borden Ranch and walked what was to become Clay Station Vineyard – they knew their search was over. Clay Station Vineyard is named after a historic stagecoach stop used during California's Gold Rush. Established in 1864 by Ivey Lewis Borden, a passionate horse-racing fan, the Borden Ranch was devoted to breeding thoroughbreds and Hereford cattle.

It was Clemente, son of the founder, who would begin to make his wines known throughout Italy and abroad in the 1920s. Sons Giovanni and Mario in the following decades consolidated the business in all its aspects, from vineyard and cellar to marketing. It is now the family`s fourth generation who enthusiastically continue a history toward the future, beginning with the right balance of tradition and innovation, attention to developments in the market and above all in the tastes of those who love fine wine and its most distinguished terroirs.

Glaetzer - Australia South Australia, Barossa Valley

Today, Ben Glaetzer carries on this family winemaking tradition and has created a small, focused portfolio of classic Barossa Valley reds which draw on traditional Barossa viticulture but are unmistakably new wave Barossa in style. The exceptional fruit for all Glaetzer wines is supplied by a loyal group of third and fourth generation Barossa grape growers and comes from a small sub-region (1.5 sq miles) of the Barossa Valley called Ebenezer. The dry-grown vines range from 30-120 and are a unique part of Australia’s viticultural heritage producing wines of great intensity and elegance. The Australian Langtons Fine Wine Guide wrote `Glaetzer is one of the emerging stars of the Barossa... philosophically and by heritage.`

Gnarly Head

Gnarly Head - USA California

At Gnarly Head it all starts in the vineyard. Their quest for outstanding Zinfandel led down a country road into the heart of Lodi, California revealing a sea of gnarled, 35-80 year-old vines pruned in a special, mop-topped way called “head trained.” True gnarly heads, these old vines yield fewer grape clusters with smaller berries than trellised vines. These mighty little berries produce intense, bold wines that are deep in colour with concentrated dark fruit flavors. Inspired by the gnarled sentinels of California`s wine growing tradition, it was decided to name the company Gnarly Head, because after all, it is all about the vine.

Greenstone Vineyard

Greenstone Vineyard - Australia Victoria, Heathcote

This 40 hectare site is beautifully situated on the old Cambrian soils that make Heathcote such an exciting area for Shiraz.

James Halliday gave the winery a Five Star rating in the 2008 Guide, and named it as one of his Top Ten newcomers. Such acclaim in the first vintage is unusual, but is testament to the quality of the vineyard.

Innocent Bystander

Innocent Bystander - Australia Victoria, Yarra Valley

Innocent Bystander is a Yarra Valley based winery producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir alongside several emerging varietals including Pinot Gris, Moscato, Sangiovese & cool climate grown Shiraz. The label first came about when the Giant Steps team decided to produce wines from the many brilliant vineyards they came across in the Yarra Valley and beyond. A visit to the winery in Healesville`s main street is a fascinating experience. Built around gravity flow principles and designed for hand making small batches of wine, the winery is an exercise in function over form, much like the strongly expressed views of its owners and winemaking team. These are approachable, drinkable wines that deliver abundant fruit flavour – their winemakers like to think of them as “a bloody good drink!”

The vineyards lie in the Tamar Valley along the Northern Tasmanian route at the heart of Tasmania's Pipers River region, an area known worldwide as "Sparkling Tasmania". With a mantle of red basalt soils and a cool climate moderated by its close proximity to the ocean, it is ideal for the slow ripening of fruit and lingering acidity so essential to the production of premium sparkling wine. In fact, the area's climate so resembled Champagne and Burgundy that several leading French Champagne houses considered basing new operations there.

Kim Crawford

Kim Crawford - New Zealand Marlborough

The key to the success of the Kim Crawford wines can be summed up in one word: "drinkability". As journalist Simon Woods wrote recently about the the Sauvignon Blanc: "The empty bottle test is always a sign of a decent wine. After a lengthy tasting of Sauvignons, I plonked four of the best on the dinner table and invited guests to dig in. Not long after, a cry of: 'Is there any more Kim Crawford?' was heard - when the other three bottles were still more than half full."

It has been lauded by the press, with James Halliday saying that ‘Frank Mitolo has methodically covered every aspect of high-quality winemaking…’ and Huon Hooke commenting that the Mitolo wines ‘…are genuinely low-yield, majority old-vine, handmade wines of real concentration and opulence…to put it simply, the wines are great.’ Frank Mitolo’s partner is winemaker Ben Glaetzer, who was recently awarded the 2004 Qantas Medal for Young Australian Winemaker of the Year.

Mount Horrocks

Mount Horrocks - Australia South Australia, Clare Valley

Mt. Horrocks is as boutique as wineries come, with an annual production of only 5000 cases. In addition everything is hand picked and hand made. But this boutique approach is allied to a rigorous and technocratic approach in order to preserve the classic Clare Valley characters of the fruit.

Mount Langi Ghiran

Mount Langi Ghiran - Australia Victoria, Grampians

The vineyards of Mount Langi Ghiran are nestled between two dramatically beautiful mountain ranges on the southern edge of the Great Dividing Range in Western Victoria, 180 km west of Melbourne. Pronounced "Mount Langee Jeeran", the name is Aboriginal for "Home of the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo". The initial vineyards were planted by the Fratin brothers in 1963, on the site of a vineyard that had been in operation at the turn of the century. Their first plantings were Shiraz, and initially, the grapes were sold to neighbouring winemakers. The exceptionally high quality of their fruit quickly drew a strong following and encouraged the Fratins to begin making their own wine. In 1979, Trevor Mast was appointed consultant winemaker. Inspired by the potential of the vineyard and keen to develop it further, he purchased the property in 1987. Two partnerships followed, until in late 2002 the property was purchased by the Rathbone family, also proprietors of Yering Station winery in the Yarra Valley.

Plantagenet

Plantagenet - Australia Western Australia, Great Southern

The Plantagenet wines enjoy enormous success. The purity of fruit captured by winemaker Richard Robson, allied to their reasonable prices, illustrate the reasons for this success.

This range also offers excellent value, something that has made them a hit in Australia.

It progresses to produce its own Ports. It wasn't until 1960 that the first vintage was produced with the family's trademark.

These wines are very intense, fully flavoured and offer an intriguing alternative to the better known wine producing areas of Portugal.

Redfin

Redfin - Australia South Australia

The Redfin wines were created with the aim of injecting a degree of excitement into Australia at this price. Australia achieved its number one position in the U.K. by over delivering on quality, but recent years have seen an emphasis more on promotions than on quality. By working directly with two growers – one in McLaren Vale for the red and another in the Adelaide Hills for the white – all the costs have been put into wine quality. The cost price is twice that of what many of the High Street brands are achieving. This is due not only to their economies of scale, but also to the quality of the fruit put into Redfin. They’ve gone to the Riverland, while we went to McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills!

Simon Hackett

Simon Hackett - Australia South Australia, McLaren Vale

Simon Hackett was born and raised in the Barossa Valley where his family have been connected with the wine trade for many generations. His great uncle attended Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1860 and later his father graduated from the inaugural Oenology course from the same college in 1938. Today Simon’s winery is situated at the entrance to the McLaren Vale in Budgen Road and it is here that he hand crafts his wines in small open top fermenters, gently nurturing them in a combination of French and American oak barriques. Simon has never been afraid to tackle less common varietals and much of his fruit is sourced from dry grown vineyards with ancient gnarled old vines. His refreshingly citrus Semillon is a real eye opener whilst his Old Vine Grenache is one of the most delicious we’ve ever tasted, although obviously we are biased! Yields are often very small and his entire annual production rarely exceeds ten thousand cases.
