First up let’s be clear, Ricky is NOT the winemaker, but played a major role in choosing the wines! Ponting Wines is a collaboration between one of Australia’s most celebrated cricketers, Ricky Ponting, and Ben Riggs, an award-winning Australian winemaker known for uncompromising, high-quality wines. Masters of their craft, these men have forged their partnership to celebrate their dedication and achievements.
At this online tasting we’ll have one hour with one of the greats of Australian cricketing, who will talk us through two of his wines, the ‘Pioneer’ Chardonnay and the ‘Mowbray Boy’ Pinot Noir, both sourced from Ricky’s home state of Tasmania, well established for producing beautiful wines!
One of the things we love most about wine is its ability to tell a story, and when that story revolves around one of Australia’s greatest sportsmen and is told by one of Australia’s greatest winemakers … we couldn’t really ask for more. Each wine in the collection draws inspiration from a particular aspect of Ponting’s life, from his early days growing up in Tasmania to his monumental achievements as the captain of one of the most successful teams this country has ever seen.
At our online tasting we’ll get to chat with Ricky about both wine and cricket.
