Zonte's Footstep

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

Brad Rey is the kingpin of a small group of winemakers and wine marketers who in 2003 decided it was time to do their own thing in McLaren Vale. Scott Collett’s family are multi-generation grape growers and makers; Anna Fisher provides business management skills; and the Heath family own the 215ha organically run vineyards in the Finniss River district whence the grape requirements of Zonte’s organic wines are supplied. This sees an extraordinary varietal range of 24 different wines using all the classic northern European varieties of shiraz, viognier, cabernet sauvignon, malbec, pinot noir, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay, as well as the Mediterranean varieties of vermentino, pinot grigio, glera, grenache, sangiovese, lagrein, tempranillo and montepulciano. Exports to the US, Canada, Ireland, Belgium, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea and Hong Kong. -JAMES HALLIDAY

About

Zonte’s Footstep is a proudly independent Australian wine producer established in 2003 by a group of friends. Grapes are sourced from our own, as well as our mates’ vineyards in McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills, Barossa and the Fleurieu. We follow the diligent pursuit of making wines for enjoyment, that are well-balanced and food-friendly, whilst being highly expressive of the variety and place from which they come. We take our wine quality seriously; but our wines' names are anything but. Each Zonte’s wine – there were 24 at last count – has its own unique personality and quirky name, reflecting a sense of fun that underlies everything we do.

Cellar Door

Information

The General Wine Bar & Kitchen is a cosy local venue, as well as the cellar door for Zonte’s Footstep. Its relaxed welcoming vibe reflects the ethos of Zonte’s owners which is that the purpose of wine is simply for enjoyment. It’s a place to hang out, eat good food, drink wine (and other local tipples) and have a laugh with friends. Wine tasting here is fun and informal, although the range is extensive. The charming exposed brick building is on the site of the original General Store which was also the local post office and telegraph station in the late 1800s.
