Castiglion Del Bosco, Brunello di Montalcino | Tuscany, France

Owned and operated by family famed throughout the world for its luxury shoes, now Salvatore Ferragamo Jr has decided to dedicate his life to wine. His grandfather invented haute couture shoes as we know them today, and the family now owns two Italian luxury wineries, one of which is based in Montalcino specializing in Brunello. Castiglion del Bosco is one of Tuscany's most noteworthy estates and a leading producer of the renowned Brunello di Montalcino. Situated in the heart of Tuscany's Brunello winemaking region, Castiglion del Bosco is located in the Val d'Orcia 12 kilometers northwest of Montalcino. The soil is characterized by the presence of sandstone, layers of clay and galestro, a typical Tuscan stone. The microclimate in this area is strongly influenced by the sea with hot, dry summers and continuous winds which reduce humidity. The richness of the galestro stone in the soil gives the wine its unique aroma, complexity and structure.Brunello di Montalcino of Castiglion del Bosco comes from a careful selection of vineyards located in the Capanna area, approximately 350 meters above sea level, on the southern side of the property.

Chateau Beauregard, Pouilly-Fuisse | Burgundy, France

The Burrier family has been living in the south of Burgundy for 500 years, and has owned Château de Beauregard for six generations. The name “Beauregard,” meaning nice view, comes from the beautiful sight one enjoys from the estate which lies isolated in the middle of the vineyards, on the rocky cliffs of Solutré and Vergisson, and on the villages of Pouilly and Fuissé.

Grape variety: Chardonnay 100% – Average age of the vines: 30 years. The vineyard is managed to promote microbial life in the soil, to encourage deep rooting of the vines. Strict control of the yields; culture respectful of the environment; ploughing; 100% hand picked.They try to get a good balance between initial seduction and ageing potential. The best moment to drink the wine depends on the natural acidity of the vintage. The young wines evoke white fruits (pear, peach, etc.), and white flowers (acacia). The wine is fresh, mineral and balanced with a honey and grapefruit finish. Getting older, the aromas become more complex and dense, a little buttery, toasted and dry fruit hints, with still this honeyed unctuousness.
