Wilson Daniels Wine Dinner

Featuring the fabulous New Zealand Chardonnays of Kumeu River Vineyards and the beautiful Tuscan reds of Castello di Volpaia!

The Brajkovich family and Kumeu River Wines is a story that parallels the New Zealand wine industry.From the pioneering days, to the establishment of the New Zealand wine industry, to today, the Brajkovich family have been internationally recognized as producing world class wine. The Brajkovichs are focused on and internationally recognised as producing world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

“If you can taste history, duty, and family pride in a glass, it’s there in the Kumeu River Chardonnays...now producing New Zealand’s greatest Chardonnays, not to mention the world’s.”
- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, M.W./Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate.

Volpaia dates back to 1172. In 1250, Volpaia was a founding member of the Lega del Chianti (Chianti League). Today Castello di Volpaia is committed to organic farming practices in all of its vineyards and complies with all the organic viticulture legislation. Castello di Volpaia began practicing organic viticulture in the late 1990s, and the wines have been certified organic since the 2004 vintage. Winemaking at Volpaia has always been intent on preserving the region’s traditions and respecting the terroir — long before such trends in returning to the past emerged. In 1980, Volpaia was one of the first wineries to produce what later became known as a Super-Tuscan (the Coltassala). By the late 1990s, when other producers were moving toward wines in the “international style” and Super-Tuscans were in great fashion, Volpaia returned to producing its flagship, Coltassala, as a Chianti Classico Riserva.
