Our Premium Wine Portfolio
Cederberg South Africa
South Africa’s most uniquely situated vineyard is located within the pristine Cederberg Wilderness Area, which lies in the Cape Floral Kingdom. Here, among spectacular rock formations and fynbos, you will find the highest altitude vineyards in the Cape. The cool climate and remote location, with its pure mountain air and water, ensures that the vines are virus free. This results in award winning wines which show an exceptional purity of fruit.
Fairvalley South Africa
“The hands that work the soil feed the soul” is the slogan that says it all. Fairvalley wines are all crafted by the Fairvalley Workers Association with profits from the sale of the wines going directly towards developing homes on the Fairvalley Farm. The logo of the hands on the label symbolizes the need to work with the earth symbol etched on one hand and the water symbol etched on the other. Earth and water are critical to our future as a species and to the family members of the association. All grapes are sourced from Fairview’s Citrusdal farms which are all Fairtrade Certified.
Floriography South Africa & France
The Floriography concept is inspired by one of the natural wonders of the world—the Cape Flowers, which bloom every year in a semi-desert region of South Africa called Namaqualand. This region stretches for over 600 miles on the west coast of southern Africa (including in Cederberg) and covers over 170,000 square miles. Over 3,900 seed species lie dormant in the soils of this region until the summer, when the area transforms into a floral wonderland. Carpets of flowers, of all species and all colors, stretch for miles in all directions. The flowering that takes place each year in the region and paints the landscape in colors that defy even the most vivid imagination is one of the most spectacular phenomena a person will ever witness.
Owned by the McKevitt family, Terra is the largest family-owned cream liqueur producer in Ireland and one of the longest established in the world with its roots going back to the very creation of the product category back in 1970’s. At this time, the original owners of the factory, R & J Emmet & Co., began producing Irish Creams Liqueurs and soon after its establishment Patsy McKevitt became its Plant Manager.
The tradition began with the audacity and expertise of Alcide Monmousseau who founded in 1886, this fine wine merchant house in Montrichard (Loir et Cher), where he discovered one of the most important quarries of regional tuffeau stone. Abandoned after having being used to build the royal castles of the Loire, the quarry was brought back to life by Alcide, who transformed it into magnificent winemaking cellars.
Peter Mertes Germany
The Peter Mertes winery is a family enterprise steeped in tradition, with headquarters in Bernkastel-Kues on the Mosel. Since 1924 the Peter Mertes Winery has been working together with employees to create only the best select wines from Germany. Peter Mertes is one of the few large scale bottling companies in Germany which carries out its own wine growing, and this has a positive influence on the quality of our wines.
Sombras Del Sol Chile
While the sun is a powerful symbol, the bringer of light and life and the source of all energy, the name Sombras Del Sol actually means The Shadow of the Sun. It is powerful and poetic and offers so much more than just a reference to the dominant celestial object. At the heart of winemaking and viniculture, a very careful balance exists. It is a balance between hot and cold, light and dark, in short between sun and shade. Winemakers constantly seek this balance and their desire for balance extends into many aspects of their craft, from careful trellising to ensure grapes receive just the right amount of sun and sun protection to planting certain varietals in areas that are best suited to developing and enhancing their flavors.
