'The Girotti family have trusted me for more than 10 years at the Domaine, my wish was to showcase some exceptional terroir with the Wilson Silla range'
The Wilson Silla range has 4 different styles, made using small 2-hectare plots.
Château Gaby is a stunning, historic château perched on top of a sloping limestone plateau and facing south over the river Dordogne. Its own park and 16 ha of rolling vineyards surround the château where low wooded hills and the lazy meanderings of the Dordogne meet
First conceived in France in 2001, concrete and recently French Oak eggs are now widely used by innovative winemakers around the world.
Tony Bish introduced concrete eggs to the NZ winemaking scene in 2015, in a collaboration with NZ Tanks in Hastings. After many prototypes, the boys are knocking out some beautiful eggs now.
Falling in love with the stunning Taransaud French Oak 'Ovum' egg was easier than falling off a bike! Tony Bish Wines has the first Ovum in the Southern Hemisphere, and our Zen Chardonnay is a world first wine.
