    About Dorcha

    Dorcha Winemaker

     “Located in Ritoznoj in Štajerska, Dorcha is the brainchild of Izidor (Dorcha) Vehovar. He is the 3rd generation of his family to continue the path of viticulture and winemaking, and is intent on a new direction, a friendlier path. A farmer without a conventional view of wine production, a winemaker who is following the local tradition of producing pure, vibrant wines. Gaining from some fresh perspective from his relatively-new neighbor in the village (Nick Gee, Heaps Good Wine Co.), he is now adding to his family's tradition by making exciting wines and made naturally with a modern twist. Izidor is a passionate but humble winemaker in the village of Ritoznoj. He keeps to himself and is often found wandering the wooded mountains of Pohorje, embracing nature and foraging for local mushrooms (a local specialty in NE Slovenia), or in his cellar processing and aging his own salumi and cured meats. - Vinum

    About Lammidia

    Lammidia Winemaker

     Davide Gentile and Marco Giuliani were childhood friends in Abruzzo, then lost touch. When they found each other again after university, it was with a shared passion for wine, so they decided to try their hands at making it together. Since the beginning of their project, they’ve approached it with a love of both natural winemaking and avid experimentation. They’ve never trained at a formal wine academy, and they don’t rely on agronomists or oenologists. They have learned by trial and error in the vineyards and cellars. In fact, their first fermentation in 2010 was such a disaster that they called in an expert grandma, virtuosa at getting rid of the evil eye, to perform a ritual over their grapes. Apparently it worked, and Lammidia (“evil eye” in Abruzzese dialect) was born. - From Cream Wine

    About Viña Echeverria

    Originally established to produce bulk wines, in 1990, the winery was converted to produce quality wines for export. In the following years, Echeverria was one of the few boutique wineries to emerge from Chile, and the first family winery from Chile to sell wine to Harrods in London. Eventually, the family started purchasing grapes, to compliment and build complexity to their wines. "We realized that to succeed and be different, we needed to be open," says Roberto Echeverria, the Technical Director Chief Winemaker, who's first solo vintage appeared on the market in 2001. With sustainable practices in the vineyard, Echevarria produces a wine for most every palate, while embracing a philosophy that's based on consistency. - T Edward

    About Gindl

    Gindl Winemaker

    When Michael Gindl, born 1983, finished agricultural school in 2002, it was already clear to him that he wanted to run the farm that his family has owned since 1807. This farm has always practiced mixed agriculture with crops, livestock, forestry, and wine. After the early death of his grandfather, Michael’s mother managed the farm because his father worked as a food inspector. Michael at that time (during his school years) took over the responsibility for vinification. Michael simultaneously began his orientation towards biodynamic methods; today the farm is certified biodyamic. Highland cattle have been bred since 2012. Horses work the vineyards and the wheat fields. Breton Dwarf sheep graze the vineyards. There are also chickens, goats, pigs and a few dogs. To preserve the individuality and genuineness obtained in the vineyards, the grapes are pressed very gently, rarely racked, and fermented spontaneously without any use of selected yeast or temperature control. Michael Gindl expounds, “I really try to do as little as possible – in fact nothing! The wines remain on the lees for a very long time and get a small dose of sulphur only shortly before bottling. My aim is to use more wooden barrels and less steel tanks in the future.” It is interesting to know that the barrels in his cellar are made from acacia and oak from his own forests. - Cream Wine

    About Levente

    Levente Winemaker

    Levente Major has been familiar with the world of vineyards and wine since childhood. His grandfather and father made small amounts every year with a few barrels for their own consumption. Levente began to be interested in the art of wine during his high school and university years, as a result he purchased his first vineyard in 2004, which was followed by several other smaller plots. In the years since then, Levente has been constantly preparing for the future, his small estate has been a myriad of attempts and "experimentation". However, the goal is always the same, to produce a unique and authentic wine that is truly expressive in the areas of grapes. The love and respect for quality wines brought Levente and his friend Kornél together in 2013 when the two decided to go beyond making wine for just themselves and friends and instead create a winery that could create high quality wines based on Hungarian traditions and using only natural methods, thus strengthening the excellence of Hungarian wines on both domestic and international markets. The vineyards are located at the southern foothills of the Mátra village in Abasár. The unique stone composition of the mud mountain, which houses the vineyards, is also showcased in the distinctive flavors of the wines. The mountain emerged as one of the side-craters of the former mighty Stratovolcano, defining the uniqueness of the mother's Stones: The foundation rocks are andesite, Andesittufa and Pyroclays. Wine-growing soils are also complex in nature: Brown forest soil mixed with red clay, tuwoody debris and weeds.
