- Champagne Vanier Fannier – Awesome Grower Champagne based in Avize (Famous town in the Cote des Blancs – also where I spend a lot of my time in France) all of the grapes come from only 4 hectares of land!
- Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz – perhaps one of the greatest Shiraz/Syrah in the world! The vineyard dates back to 1860, and coincidentally is also only 4 hectares of land is used to grow these grapes! If you have not tried this yet, you HAVE to on your next visit!
- Then there is Chef Shonn’s Sassicaia selection that goes all the way back to 1982! That is definitely something unique, especially the 1990 which was both a great year and is probably at its peak drinking condition right now!
