Loveblock was forged in 2004 by veteran vintners Erica and Kim Crawford. Perched on top of the hills overlooking Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, the Loveblock is far removed from the agricultural bustle in the valley below.
Back in 2004, the Loveblock Farm was a wild piece of land, untamed and hidden from the world. Kim and Erica worked in the wine industry for most of their lives and wondered what they could do with this wildness: how would the unique terroir translate to flavours in wine? Can they make wine that is elegant, restrained and complex? Wine that speaks of its place and a season.
Land is precious in New Zealand; the economy largely depends on agriculture. As grape growers and wine farmers, they are custodians of this land. Erica and Kim are charged with creating the best wine they can to express this extraordinary place, following a deeply held belief in integrated, sustainable farming to allow the wine to express its true and naked terroir.
Family Owned. Estate Grown. Sustainably Farmed.
Located in a region of Portugal with one of the longest wine traditions, Adega de Azueira is more than 50 years in existence.
Domaine Daniel Chotard is located at the end of the Reigny village. The family-run estate produces unique Sancerre wines from their plots.
The estate consists of 14 hectares of vines within 31 lieu-dits of Pinot Noir(50%), Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Meunier(20%), along with small amounts of Champagne’s “forgotten”grapes” – Pinot Blanc, Arbane and Petit Meslier. From empirical observation, Benoît and Mélanie have singled out 63 parcels that they vinify individually each vintage, permitting unparalled precision in blending decisions for base and reserve wines, but also letting them highlight single vineyard expressions of their land.
the idea of the label as a representative image of the product would be good if we already had an important past with the bottle. Cantine Europa has decided to focus on the bottled product, and therefore the bottles must be evident.
The company is named Feudi Salentini after the Feudalism time, when carriages, castles, dames and knights had a leading role in such a magical land. This was the extraordinary scenario where wine was considered to be the most prestigious and healthy drink.
