About Cantina del Taburno

Cantina del Taburno is located in Campania, on the slopes of Monte Taburno which overlooks the town of Benevento just 15 miles away. This area is all... about the wonderful indigenous grapes of Campania like Falanghina, Fiano, Aglianico and Piedirosso. The rich soils, the incredibly balanced weather this region enjoys regularly and, of course, the particular microclimate the slopes and nearby mountains create make for some incredibly delicious wines. The winery at Cantina del Taburno was founded in 1972, but the vineyards had long been a part of what was called the “Consorzio Agrario di Benevento” (Agrarian Consortium of Benevento) which was established in 1901. At the time, these Consortiums were vital for the survival of Italian grape growers as the most of them were too poor to grow grapes, make and bottle wine AND do sales. It was a group effort that was common in all of Italy and ensured all could benefit. While most producers in northern and central Italy managed to become independent quickly, the south has been making their mark only now in the last 15-20 years and they are coming up strong. Today the estate boasts 600 hectares of land and covers all corners of the Sannio wine making region around Benevento.

About Agricola Punica

Giacomo Tachis is almost single-handedly responsible for not only the creation of Super Tuscan styled wines, but for helping the region create the market... around it. He has consulted on hundreds of similar projects from the 1970s until his death in February of 2016. In the 1980s Giacomo had many projects already underway in Tuscany and his eye went to the island of Sardinia as the next place to explore for great winemaking. This region was already a place where great wines were being made and he wanted to dive right in. During one of his visits to southwestern Sardegna – in a region called Sulcis – Giacomo found the right place to execute his plan of great Sardinian winemaking. In collaboration with an existing winery called Cantina di Santadi, Giacomo Tachis started to play around with the native Carignano grape and began making local wines to better understand their nature. He saw huge potential in blending the Carignano grape with other varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon which he would soon start doing. It took a few decades, but finally Tachis was able to join the Tuscan style with that of Sardinia and in 2002 the famous Sassicaia family invested in Agricola Punica.

About Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca

Winemakers for more than 600 years, the Antinori family has owned Tormaresca, its Puglian estate, since 1998. Tormaresca boasts three sites:... Tenuta Bocca di Lupo in Castel del Monte in Murgia, Tenuta Carrabo in Manduria, and Masseria Maime in Salento, the first inland and the latter two closer to the Adriatic Sea. Growing both indigenous and international grapes, Tormaresca draws from these two locations to create wines that offer a finessed style that bridges traditional Italian and international wine profiles. As with most of Antinori's estates, Tormaresca rests in the capable hands of CEO, enologist, and winemaker Renzo Cotarella, who works to craft wines that transmit the region's unusual volcanic terroir. Bocca di Lupo, the flagship Aglianico wine from Tormaresca’s Murgia site, may be the most famous of the estate’s releases, but Tormaresca makes a range of wines, and each represents a different facet of Puglia, one of Italy’s great undiscovered gems.

About Villa S.Anna

Located in the village of Abbadia di Montepulciano the hills of southern Tuscany, Villa S. Anna (originally spelled Villa Sant’Anna) stands as a standard... bearer of traditional Vino di Montepulciano. Villa S.Anna is owned and operated by three women: matriarch Simona Ruggeri Fabroni and her two daughters, Anna and Margherita. Simona’s family had owned the land that’s now Villa S.Anna for centuries, quietly making some wine for personal consumption and selling off the rest of the grapes to other producers. In 1989, Simona decided to begin estate-bottling her wines, and Villa S.Anna was born. Over the past three decades, Simona and her daughters have increased their vineyard holdings to about 25 acres, mostly in the two regions of Chianti Colli Senesi and Vino Nobili Montepulciano, and today this small estate crafts four wines, each one representative of its Tuscan land, Tuscan traditions, and the passion of three Tuscan women.

Castello Bonomi

Castello Bonomi Franciacorta Brut Cru Perdu DOCG 2014 750ml

About Castello Bonomi

The Paladin family, who has been making estate-bottled wine for about 60 years, owns several estates across Italy, from the Veneto to Tuscany, but... perhaps their most famous and most distinct is Castello Bonomi, in Lombardy’s Franciacorta region. With vinicultural history that dates back to medieval Benedictine monks, Franciacorta spans about 5,400 acres, but this rare northern Italian region is devoted to one unique style of wine: the best champagne-styled sparklers that you can find outside of France — indeed, it’s the sole DOCG region that permits classic méthode champenoise sparklers. The family-owned-and-operated Castello Bonomi estate is housed in a gorgeous art deco villa built in the late nineteenth century, and the estate’s vineyards sit on 60 steeply pitched acres in a natural amphitheater that rests at the foot of Mount Orfano. These terraced vineyards enjoy a privileged microclimate that includes limestone-rich soils, southern exposures, excellent drainage, and pure sunlight. These elements provide the raw materials that Castello Bonomi’s Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes need, while a strict green harvest, low yields, and stringent grape sorting help the estate’s team craft a range of terroir-driven, award-winning Franciacorta wines.

About Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Tignanello

The Antinori family’s Tenuta Tignanello is a gently hilly property located between that the family has owned since the 1800s. This... 321-acre Tuscan estate gets its name — Tignanello — from its most famous vineyard, but its vines grow the grapes for multiple wines. When Piero Antinori was searching to add his own voice to the Super-Tuscan revolution in the late 1960s, he turned to Giacomo Tachis, the consulting winemaker behind Sangiovese, as well as Ornellaia. Piero wanted to make wines that reflected his family’s Tuscan heritage, and in 1971, Tignanello, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc, was born. Sporting marly, limestone-rich soils that show remnants of the Pliocene Period when the region was covered in an ocean, Tenuta Tignanello enjoys sunny days, cool nights, and a gentle breeze, ideal conditions for wines that sing with a true Tuscan voice.

Domaine Francois Raveneau

Domaine François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux 2009 1.5L

About Domaine François Raveneau

One thing about François Raveneau is that this taciturn vigneron did things his way. In 1948, François united the last of his family’s... Chablis parcels with those of his wife, a member of the Dauvissat family, to form the estate that still bears his name. François was the first of his long line of winemakers to estate-bottle his own wines, and the wines he made were so extraordinary — and so miniscule in quantity — that to experience them was a Chablis-lover’s dream. François dedicated his life to securing outstanding vineyards and to producing the best, most terroir-driven wines he could make. He didn’t care about fame or fortune, and he refused to export his wines to the States until the 1980s! Today, the estate is run by François’ three children, vigneron Jean-Marie, his brother Bernard, and Bernard’s daughter Isabelle. The estate still makes tiny quantities (just 3,000 cases a year) from its 20-acres of mostly grand cru and premier cru vineyards, still handpicks its grapes, and still shuns the limelight in pursuit of making extraordinary Chardonnay wines.

About Gaja

The Gaja estate was founded in 1859 by Angelo Gaja’s great-grandfather, but in 1961 Angelo assumed control of the family’s winery and put it on the path to... glory. At first, Angelo chose to bottle only estate-grown wines, reduce crop sizes, and decrease fermentation periods, but by 1967, Angelo began to make larger changes, like the bottling of cru Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo, with Sorì Tildìn following in 1970 and Costa Russi in 1978. In the mid-1970s, Angelo began aging his wines in barriques, and he replaced some prime Nebbiolo vines in Barbaresco with Cabernet Sauvignon for his Darmagi and Chardonnay for his Gaia & Rey. Angelo’s boldness brought international notice to his wines, as well as Piemonte wines. Throughout his career, Angelo refused to play by any rules but his own; he never compromised on the quality of his wines; and he succeeded wildly. Angelo began his transition to retirement in 2004, and winemaking duties now rest in the hands of his daughter, Gaia, who has been making bold moves of her own, all in the single-minded pursuit of crafting wines of outstanding excellence.
