The Castello del Terriccio estate is located in Tuscany, Italy. The 60-hectare vineyard consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah and the vines enjoy wonderful exposure, overlooking the sea, benefitting from its warmth and brightness. The vines are also surrounded by 'maquis' and eucalyptus trees, which as well as protecting them, also contribute to the aromas and scents that so characterise the Terriccio wines. The wines of Castello del Terriccio can be approached almost immediately and yet age so well over a decade and more.

Founded by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880, Casa Ramos Pinto rapidly became noted, at the time, for its innovative and enterprising strategy. These were the natural results of a forward thinking strategy, based on the modernisation of selection, batching and ageing circuits, and the special care which Adriano Ramos Pinto devoted to the packaging and promotion of his wines.In 1990, the integration of the House into the Roederer Group finally made possible a project that had begun with the viticultural research of 1976: the creation of the Ramos Pinto red and white still wines. This was a long adventure that offers you today some of the most well-known Douro wines.

A boutique winery situated in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, was originally a defensive tower known as early as 1183 by the name of “Nectar Dei” (The Nectar of the God). In the 16th century, the vast property belonged to the Renaissance artist Michelangelo Buonarroti. Michelangelo sent Nittardi wine to Rome as a “genuine gift to the Pope Julius II”. Today, in honour of that tradition, every year the first bottles of Nectar Dei, the top wine from the Maremma vineyards, are presented to the Pope. 
As homage to Michelangelo, the unique combination of art and wine is still cultivated today at Nittardi. Since 1981, a well-known artist paints the label as well as the wrapping paper used for the Casanuova di Nittardi Vigna Doghessa wine bottles. 
Nittardi wines has won international awards like Three Glasses from Gambero Rosso, Five Bottles from Vini d’Italia, 5 Stars from Decanter, and 90+ (max. 94) points from Wine Spectator. The Wine Enthusiast, Wine Advocate and James Suckling have all likewise given Nittardi the highest praise.

The Casa Ramos Pinto Port wines are prepared in the modern vinification centres at the Quinta dos Bons Ares and the Quinta do Bom Retiro, but in the case of special category wines (LBV, Vintage, and wines indicating their age), the grapes are trodden in the traditional wine cellars as this age-old technique allows for the juice of the fruit to be extracted more efficiently.

Schlossgut Diel belongs in the class of the elite. Armin, the owner, occupies an unprecedented position in the wine world. He is proprietor of his estate on the Nahe, and he is perhaps the most influential wine writer in Germany. Imagine if Robert Parker owned one of the 1st-Growth Bordeaux: just like that. “This man is such an expert, imagine how good his own wines must be.” The rieslings hail most importantly from a trio of contiguous Grand Crus: Goldloch on thin loam and gravel over a rocky subsoil, Burgberg on quartzite, and Pittermännchen on Hunsrück slate. Elite blue-chip estate on the lower Nahe, producing scintillating terroir-driven rieslings ranging from tingly slatey to baroque. Attentive viticulture and intelligent craftsmanship in the cellar make this one of Germany’s leading estates.
