Albarino Lembranzas, Rias Baixas, Spain

The DO of Rías Baixas is renowned for the Albariño grape, a native variety that produces some of the best white wines in Spain if not the world. Situated in the northwestern region of Galicia, the DO was formally established in 1988 and Albariño has always been at the forefront of winemaking grapes for this coastal region. The vines here share the same mineral-rich soils and cool climate as some of the world’s other renowned white wine-producing regions, including France’s Loire Valley, New Zealand, and the Rhine region of Germany.

Barbaresco Garassino, Tenuta Carretta, Piedmont, Italy

In 1985, the Miroglio family purchased the Tenuta Carretta estate in the district of Roero and set about restoring it to its former glory. Records of land cultivation on this estate date back to the 12th century, while written documentation confirms that vines were present on the hills surrounding the area in 1594. The Miroglio family were inspired by the staggering natural beauty of the region and were keen to return the land to its original use, producing wines of exceptional quality. The family have sought to respect local winemaking traditions, but also have maintained a focus on progressive techniques and new market requirements. Their methods have undoubtedly led to a successful outcome, as Tenuta Carretta is now considered one of the most prestigious wineries in the Roero and Langhe regions.

Billecart Salmon Brut Reserve Champagne, France

It all started in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon were married, marking the creation of their Champagne House. This has been a family story since the beginning with Louis Salmon, brother of Elisabeth and a passionate oenologist, getting involved in the creation of the wines.

Thus, over 7 generations, each member of the family has endeavoured to continue the family tradition, staying faithful to the same motto: “Give priority to quality, strive for excellence”.

Blankbottle Moment of Silence, Wellington, South Africa

From critically-acclaimed South African winemaker Pieter H. Walser. Pieter explains when he first established the basic premise of the concept. “In 2004, a lady came to my house to buy wine. She asked for anything but Shiraz. “I don’t drink Shiraz”, were her exact words. I poured her a glass of wine. She loved it and bought 3 cases. It was a straight Shiraz. It’s a fact – we do judge the book by its cover.” And so was born the idea of a range of wines that has no limitations when it comes to style, vintage, area or grape varieties

Bobal, Academia de Los Nocturnos, Pago de Tharsys, Utiel-Requena, Spain

Located in the unheralded region of Utiel-Requena, Pago de Tharsys is an old estate which dates back to 1805. It was purchased by the Garcia family in 1981 and they began adding plots of vines in the early 1990s. Therefore, despite the fact it is an estate steeped in history, it is very much a modern project that remains in progress. Known as “The Godfather of Valencian Cava” for his work to grow the reputation of D.O. Cava wines in this area, Vicente Garcia has always strived to find harmony between traditional and modern winemaking techniques in order to bring out the best of the indigenous varieties of Valencia – particularly Bobal. Their Academia de Nocturnos range is an homage to the mythical ‘Nocturnal Academy’ of 16th century Valencia, where well-known artists and novelists used to meet – always with a glass of wine in hand
