St. Emillion & World’s End Napa
Jonathan Maltus, an Englishman originally from Africa, has always been a strong believer that a bottle of wine should be judged by the taste of its contents over the ‘big name’ label slapped on the front.
His philosophy can be most easily described in two parts: do things differently, and do things better. Arriving in Saint-Émilion during the ‘garage period’ in the 1990s when breaking the rules of classic Bordeaux was all the rave, Jonathan soon gained a reputation for being able to produce a range of wines which stood out just as successfully for being unique as for being top quality. Now leading dynamic teams in both Bordeaux and Napa Valley, he’s more ambitious than ever and a driving force for change.
Best of all, he loves what he does – winemaking passion is the root of his success and the expertise of him and his team is proudly displayed in every bottle.
