A beautiful territory, rather unknown for his wine production - even if we can date it from centuries - and coming back on the scene in recent decades, with 2 very nice and interesting wineries.

2017 marks the 23rd event year of the ‘Clare Valley Wine Show’. At the recent wine show in October 2017, we entered three of our 2012 vintage Schobers wines and all three received medals! The 2012 Schobers Class Shiraz received a silver medal in the Shiraz exhibition, 2014 vintage and older round. The 2012 Schobers Needle-In-A-Haystack received a bronze medal in the same category and the 2012 Schobers Cabernet Sauvignon received a bronze medal. No other winery in the Clare Valley region received multiple entries and medals for all their wines. A very exciting time for us, and having all three wines wine medals is an amazing achievement for Schobers. See more information here:

When Neal Martin was rating his 2016 best value Bordeaux Wines, he picked 3 Cru Bourgeois. He’s number 2 pick was chateau Tour Seran 2014. Robert Parker kept reminded that Bordeaux is about value, some people laughed but the wine lovers that look beyond the Classified Growth often agree.
Neal explain his Cru Bourgeos choice: “I am going to choose three Cru Bourgeois here, as a reminder that Bordeaux still represents unbeatable value once you step away from the top labels.” As Neal got recently involved with Vinum, this plateform should get even more exciting…
The Hotel-Dieu, nowadays called Hospices de Beaune should be a definite stop on any Burgundian trip. The Beaune city itself is a cutie, with little gems hidden between all the touristic Cafés and boutique. Any wine book fan would fall in love with the exhaustive selection you can find in the libraries shelves and any wine map fan would fall in love with the multitude of precise and historic map of the region. Of course, I’m an amateur of both and it was heaven.
The Hospices de Beaune is the main attraction of the village itself. What started out as a hospital foundation from the Middle Ages, the Hospices de Beaune is now one of France’s most prestigious historic monuments. Besides the historic and colourful architectural appeal of the monument, is a strong implication in the wine industry of the region and it all started with generosity.
In 1457, Guillemette Levernier made the first gift of vineyards to the Hospices de Beaune, and this tradition was to continue for five centuries. Today, the wine estate is around 60 hectares, of which 50 are devoted to Pinot Noir and the rest to Chardonnay. Entrusted to 22 winemakers handpicked by its manager, this exceptional vineyard accounts for 85% of premiers crus and Grands crus sold at auction on the third Sunday in November. The sale, today organised by Christie’s auction house, is the most famous wine charity auction in the world. The proceeds of the sale are used to improve the hospital’s equipment and in the conservation of the Hôtel Dieu.
The Hospices de Beaune has an iconic status in burgundy as well as a well-developed influence and ownership in the industry. Its symbolism is widespread around the world, its hospital center has spread health, help and the auction is an annual meeting very valued of professionals of the vine and the wine. 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
