Visit of Jeffrey Grosset, iconic Australian dry Riesling producer


A very nice break today in our harvest routine to receive distinctive visitors from "down under". Iconic Aussie proprietor Jeffrey Grosset with partner Stephanie Toole (who owns Mount Horrocks Wines) and two of Jeffreys' staff, who are responsible for the quality control and cellar management.

The visit included a vineyards tour, sampling of the Pinot Gris grapes being picked that day and an extensive tasting of our latest (and future) releases of Rieslings and some older vintages...

We just could not resist showing our friends the latest version of DIAM, the closure that we are now using on all of our wines [learn more]
