Drinks International, one of the most trusted and respected global drink journals, has released their annual list of “Most Admired Wine Brands in the World,” and 5 of Summergate’s partners have topped this list (with 3 featured in the top 10)!

Villa Maria (#4), Casillero del Diablo (#6), Ridge (#7), Chateau Musar (#23), and Yalumba (#24) were all ranked in the top 30, a true honor and recognition of the quality of these outstanding wineries. 

More than 200 of the world’s top masters of wine, sommeliers, educators and journalists took part in the annual poll, which pits wine brands from all regions, styles and qualities against each other.

Sir George Fistonich, Founder and CEO of Villa Maria Estate, which was #4 on this list, was elated with the accolade. “To be number one in New Zealand and fourth in the world is truly phenomenal, especially considering there is estimated to be over 100,000 wineries globally. It’s such amazing recognition for Villa Maria as well as New Zealand. New Zealand is a very young wine producing country so to achieve fourth place, in such a prestigious competition, with old world leaders such as Torres, Chateau d'Yquem and Chateau Margaux is a huge source of pride. I’m incredibly proud.”
