Sangiovese and Barbera are not “old world”, not even “new world”, it’s “out of this world!” Stand out from the crowd; Best drunk proud, with
anything loud.

Zonte’s Footstep’s Canto di Lago vineyard, meaning ‘Song of the Lake’ is planted next to the shores of Lake Alexandrina. Our vignerons claim that the sound of the gently lapping
the water is the more beautiful for a vine than any other sound, and is the made of Mediterranean grape varieties such as in this blend.
Zontes’s Footstep is named after 19th  century Zante currant vineyard as new plantings follow the original footstep. The currant business dried up, but Zonte’s Footstep became
our blueprint…
In 2003 a group of mates pooled old white utes and new-ish tractors to grow the best grapes from the best vineyards. All we want to do is taste our fruit in our wine, so we
charged our reigning winemaker, Mr. Ben Riggs, with one goal; to make wine true to vineyard so long as it is a bloody good drink!
The Canto di Lago vineyard is on a 40 million year old alluvial plain, nestled between two rivers adjacent to Lake Alexandrina, upstream from the River Murray’s sea mouth. It is an
oasis in a cool desert with vines planted on their own roots, in maritime red sands that sit over pre-Cambrian Limestone and ideal for growing grapes
The truth is out there in the vineyard…. but the proof is in this bottle
This is how late chairman Evans OBE made us all do it.
