Value from the Vale


Twenty years ago, the vignerons of McLaren Vale were seriously concerned that the majority of grapes that they grew were released in blends by large companies that didn’t acknowledge the source of the fruit. That situation has changed dramatically and the region now boasts an undisputed reputation for producing stellar warm-climate shiraz, cabernet and grenache.

Value from the Vale


‘This is the most exciting time to be involved in Australian wine', says Steve Pannell, the McLaren Vale-based winemaker who once oversaw the production of millions of liters at Hardys before leaving to set up his own, eponymous boutique label. 'Quality has never been better; we're beginning to break our obsession with the classic wine styles of France; we're making wines we want to drink, that are suited to our climate and way of life, that represent us and who we are.’ MAX ALLEX, JancisRobinson.com

Not only is it at the heart of some of Central Italy's greatest wines like Vino Nobile di Montelpulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico and of course now countless high quality 100% Super Tuscans, it is also one of the most widely planted varieties across all of Italy.

Galicia’s isolation and inhospitable terrain has resulted in a slow recovery of the indigenous grape varieties. SEBASTIAN
