Columbus Wine and Spirits Portfolio

Rued Winery

Columbus_Wine_and_Spirits

In 1876, Henry Rued left his home in Switzerland and traveled to Northern California where he would take up employment planting grapes for the Beringer Brothers in Napa Valley.

Though a new country for Henry, it was not a new line of work. The Rueds were a grape growing family in Switzerland. And it wasn’t too long before Henry Rued planted his own grapes. In 1882 he put down his family’s roots, as well as grapevines, in Sonoma County.

Six generations and more than 125 years later, the Rued family continues to farm land throughout Sonoma county, cultivating wine grapes at their Home Estate in Dry Creek Valley as well as farming substantial tracks of land in Russian River Valley and Alexander Valley. And of course, they now produce handcrafted, small batch wines under their own label—they are the wines that define a family whose roots extend deep into Sonoma County history.

Sarah’s Vineyard

Columbus_Wine_and_Spirits

Located in Gilroy, California, the philosophy and dream of Sarah’s Vineyard brings together the world of fine wine, fine food, and fine arts. Founded in 1978 in a hidden corner of the southwestern Santa Clara Valley, Sarah’s Vineyard produces handmade wines using traditional techniques. The Santa Cruz Mountain foothills near a windy mountain pass afford Sarah’s Vineyard a coastal microclimate of foggy mornings, sunny afternoons tempered by strong ocean breezes and chilly nights that are ideal conditions for premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rhone varietals.

Sarah’s Vineyard harvests various blocks in each vineyard based upon careful monitoring of grape sugar and acidity with a focus on the pH of the grapes. To insure the highest quality of fruit at the crush pad, all harvesting is done by hand from 6am til noon. Gentle destemming and sorting provides an output of perfect whole berries. Whole berry fermentation, with no crushing of berries or pumping of must, contributes to the high quality of their wines. Free run juice is aged separately from lightly pressed (1.6 bar) wine prior to blending and bottling. They use only French oak 228 liter barrels which are topped twice monthly in their humidity controlled barrel room. Bottling is done on premises using their own small fully automated bottling line, which includes nitrogen sparging and vacuum corking to limit oxygen pickup. Typically their wines receive six months to one year of bottle aging before release.

Domalne De Papolle

Columbus_Wine_and_Spirits

Historically important, the Domaine de Papolle can trace their roots back to the 17th century as the center of the community and as a producer of fine distilled spirits.  Today this unassuming estate takes its place amongst the top tier producers of Armagnac in the Bas-Armagnac region.

Typically no more than eight 400Liter barrels are produced each year.  A quantity somewhat less than commercial producers loose to evaporation in the barrel each year.  Age designated production is bottled at cask strength to maintain the character of the base spirit and allow the rich character of the Armagnac show through.

Tasting through the range of Armagnacs produced is an ethereal experience that allows one to see the evolution of the spirit from fruit driven to one whose floral components that emerge after a few years in wood, only in later stages to be eclipsed by the spice of the wood in harmony with the alcohol, the fruity and floral notes. The cellar current holds vintage selections from 1990 dating back to 1973 bottled to order on special request. The 1977 and 1990 are currently being inventoried in the USA at their exclusive importer Columbus Wine and Spirits.

 Bodegas Mocen Columbus_Wine_and_Spirits

The abandoned medieval cellars where wine used to age in the times of Catholic Kings and the discovery of America is at the heart of Bodegas Mocén. Purchased and restored along with 140 hectares of prime vineyard land in the D.O. Rueda by visionary restaurateur Jose Luis in 1988. After 25 years Mr. Luis is ready to introduce the American market to the high quality wines of Bodegas Mocén. 

Vineyard:

  • O. Rueda 298 ha. between 740 – 760 meters  – high altitude provides good acidity
  • average vine age 27 years – mature vines provide depth and structure
  • typical vine spacing 1.5 meters x 3 meters  – close planting provides intensity of flavor
  • silt and sand with loose pebbles – plants drive deep roots providing minerality

Vineyard plantings are focused on tradition but balanced with innovation.

47% Verdejo – 13% Sauvignon Blanc – 7% Viura – 24%Tempranillo – 8% Cabernet – 1% Merlot

Extreme caution is employed at the winery to bring the harvest to the cellar door in the optimum condition. Night harvesting and no crushed fruit are used in the MOCÉN line of production.

Doolhof Wine Estate

The valley in which Doolhof lies is blessed with unique and varied terroirs. The microclimates, growing conditions and soil types make it ideal for growing wine grapes. The Estate lies between Bain’s Kloof and the Groenberg Mountain Range.

Doolhof_Wine_Estate

The Doolhof Vineyards

The Doolhof Wine Estate lies between Bain’s Kloof and the Groenberg Mountain Range. The result is soils that are finer, more balanced and deeper than in the surrounding countryside with clay content evenly distributed. A combination of Malmesbury shale, homogenic Glenrosa and Clovelly soils ensure that the roots are able to descend to four metres or beyond.

Doolhof_Wine_EstateWhile Doolhof has more than adequate irrigation, natural water retention is also very good, without any sign of permanent dampness. While the shape and exposure (topography) of the various parts of the Doolhof Wine Estate allow for several distinct microclimates, generally, Doolhof experiences cooler winters and moderate summers compared with the Wellington norm.

Doolhof_Wine_Estate

Roughly 40 of the farm’s 380 hectares are planted to vine. Soils, growing conditions and microclimates vary considerably across this large expanse (which reaches up into Bain’s Kloof), and each grape varietal is faithfully wedded to its ideal terroir. Two white varietals, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, are grown, with a substantial number of reds. They include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, Pinotage and Shiraz. The white varietals are planted on the eastern slopes of the Groenberg, which allow the grapes cooler days and less direct sunlight. The late sunrise and early sunset also allow for a longer ripening process, enhancing the elegance of the award winning wines.

Meandering through Doolhof Wine Estate is the picturesque Kromme River, which is supplemented by Gawie-se-Water. The River Walk, which was created in 2007, allows visitors to enjoy the scenic views on offer at Doolhof. One can follow the meandering path for several kilometres and stop at any one of the designated picnic sites along the walk.

Doolhof_Wine_Estate

Visitors are welcome to enjoy a 10km walk through the vineyards. Doolhof, which is known for its mysterious hills and vales, is also home to many small mammals, including buck, porcupine, baboons and even leopard and who knows – you might even come across the Minotaur!

Denizens of Doolhof Wine Club

Doolholf_Wine_Estate

The Denizens of Doolhof Wine Club was formed to give members of the public the opportunity to access the wines directly from Doolhof, not only to receive Doolhof wine on a regular basis, but also to receive certain freedoms and privileges to enjoy the Estate.

The Tasting Room @ Doolhof

Doolholf_Wine_Estate

The understated elegance of the cool, air conditioned, blue and white Tasting Room at Doolhof Wine Estate provides the perfect foil to display their award winning wines. It is situated in the original wagon house built in the late 19th century and, with light flowing in from its large windows and doors, invites guests to linger awhile to taste and purchase superb wines.

A private tasting area situated at the end of the long room can be reserved for groups of six people. The service includes a tasting of seven or eight wines by Doolhof’s wine maker. Bookings are essential.

A large terrace with cooling fountains and a shady garden, adjoins the Tasting Room, making it ideal for enjoying the light lunches on offer, or a quiet stroll through the gardens.

Reynolds Wine Growers SA

The Reynolds Wine Growers Vineyard is set amid the S. Mamede hills, in a place of immense beauty – five hundred acres of meadows streaked with green, gold and intense brown. The scenery is filled with sky and hills, oak and cork trees dotted like sheep across the landscape.

Reynolds_Wine_Growers

The one hundred acres of vines are planted on the hilltop, which provides adequate natural drainage and excellent sunlight. The soil is mostly shale. The undulations of the terrain make the temperature vary hugely from night to day, which promotes the best ripening conditions for the grapes.

Reynolds_Wine_GrowersAlicante Bouschet (The Reynolds main variety)

It was introduced in Portugal by the Reynolds family over a century and a half ago. Alicante Bouschet or Alicante Henri Bouschet is a wine grape variety that has been widely cultivated since 1866. It is a cross of Petit Bouschet (itself a cross of the very old variety Teinturier du Cher and Aramon) and Grenache.

 

 

 

 

Beside Alicante Bouschet others red and white portugueses varieties are cultivated, such as.

The Winery – The Perfect Place

The winery was built in an old barn used in the past as a cattle shed. The reconstruction and transformation of the house were made with the utmost respect for the original structure: thick stonewalls, chestnut wooden ceilings and slate floors. This is the perfect place for the production of excellent wines, with the average temperature below 20ºC and a continuous optimum level of humidity.

Reynolds_Wine_Growers

The huge French oak casks were made to order for this particular cellar by the famous French coopers Seguin Moreau: they are used for the fermentation, just as they are by the great Chateaux of the World. During the (delete grape) harvest, each variety is picked in small quantities. The grapes are not crushed but gravity takes over. This method requires hard and skilful manual work.

Reynold Wines
