The Oldest Wine House in Champagne In 1584 Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wine-grower, made still, mostly red, wines from the grapes he harvested from his own vines. In those days, Burgundy & Champagne vied for pride of place at the table of the Kings of France. The reputation of the wine of Aÿ was such that François the First had his own winery built there, which is now owned by Champagne Gosset. Then, in the 18th century the wine made in and around Aÿ began to bubble, and the Gosset family turned naturally to the production of champagne.

Our story begins with our Roman ancestors who perfected the ancient art of blending wine with Mediterranean herbs. Over time the northern Italian region of Piedmont became the centre of this craft: The Alps and fertile soils a rich source of herbs and the cool climate providing light, delicate wines. Later in the Middle Ages, Italian merchants brought rare and exotic botanicals to the port of Genova creating more complex and distinct aromatic wines. MARTINI® was born of a partnership between two skilled men, Alessandro Martini and Luigi Rossi. Together they shared a vision to produce a unique product that would represent the very best in Italian quality and style. Throughout time they sort to create a new formulation for a smoother, more consistent style of aromatic wine. In 1863 they launched their masterpiece to global acclaim and the new company of MARTINI® came into being.

In 2003, Brent Marris began his search for a unique vineyard property. He discovered an exceptional 150 hectare property on the banks of the Waihopai River.

The property is also privileged to be home to two breeding pairs of extremely rare New Zealand falcon - the karearea.

Amongst the twisted vines of our ancestry, were the families - de Marisco, who in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries habited (in part) the island of Lundy off the south-west coast of England. The family, form their stronghold on the island, maintained a tempestuous relationship with the monarchy - at times receiving royal favour, and yet ultimately - for the activities of piracy and treason, incurring the full and tragic vehemence of the King’s displeasure. These days, the descendant Marris family have achieved acclaim for their success in the pursuit of making fine wines, being amongst the pioneering winemaking families of the world renowned Marlborough wine region.

GIMBLETT GRAVELS The Gimblett Gravels region is New Zealand’s premier red wine area - barren, stony, hot, dry and sheltered. Bordeaux varieties plus Syrah and Chardonnay are typically grown there, but Trinity Hill also grows Tempranillo, Viognier, Pinot Gris and other lesser-known varieties. Well-ripened, lowcropping yields, all hand-picked, plus sensitive winemaking techniques and oakageing, produce intense and complex awardwinning wines, reflecting The Gravels’ “terroir”.

Mt Difficulty is a boutique winery located in Bannockburn, Central Otago, and was named after the mountain overlooking Felton Road and the Southern Cromwell Basin. The brand started in 1998 with a very small production of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which went on to win gold medals at major New Zealand wine shows. A new state of the art winery was commissioned in 2001 to produce handmade Pinot Noir, along with separate facilities for other varieties such as a specific barrel hall for Chardonnay.

The House of Croft was founded over three hundred years ago, with the earliest evidence of the firm’s activity as a Port shipper dating from 1678, coincidentally the year of the first ever recorded shipments of Port wine. The place of distinction occupied by Croft and its wines is due in no small measure to its ownership of one of the finest estates of the Douro Valley, the famous Quinta da Roêda.
