Giaconda vineyard was established by Rick Kinzbrunner, a mechanical engineer who became interested in wine in the early 1970's. Rick then spent the next ten years working in the industry, travelling and following his passion for wine. After a brief stint in New Zealand, he studied at Davis University in California and worked at some of the most respected wineries in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys (namely Stag's Leap, Simi and Matanzas Creek). In Europe he worked for the Moueix group in Bordeaux, co-owner of the fabled Chateau Petrus.

Nantua Range is a blend of premium Giaconda Estate grown and fruit sourced from close neighbouring vineyards. This wine is made using similar methods to the Estate range, with less time in barrel and less new oak. This results in a more fruit-forward style that is ready to drink immediately and does not require long term cellaring. The Nantua Range offers all the Giaconda hallmarks of complexity, palate texture and minerality.

A comforting tone of magenta and black; violets, crushed leaf, cedar and polished leather with some crunchy red berry fruit. As it opens-up, a delicious core of bright red fruits corseted by cedary tannins which pulsate along the palate. Nicely rounded, no bumps or edges. A joyous, harmonious wine that brings cabernet to life and delivers on the noble elements of the variety in a most accessible manner. For those who like a cabernet, that is more right-bank than left-bank, in terms if style.
