It was her work developing Waitrose’s “On the QT” (On the Quiet) range that stood out in the minds of our judges

Ever wondered what the winemakers keep for themselves?

Because 2011 was such an exceptional vintage, the De Martino family decided to bottle a small parcel from their prestigious Alto de Piedra vineyard in the foothills of the Andes mountains. Crafted to display all the brilliance of Chile's signature grape variety, Carmenère, it was made to be kept back for the family table on special events. We're thrilled to secure 1200 bottles for our "On the QT" range.

Handcrafted by two Masters of Wine

It's estimated more people have been in space than have become Masters of Wine. So to have two working on one special-project wine is rare indeed. This limited-edition Grenache is a collaboration between maestros Bernard Smart and Sue Trott. It displays immense hedgerow-fruit concentration and richness thanks to careful fermentation in egg-shaped concrete containers, which replicate the winemaking techniques of the ancient Greeks. Be swift to enjoy this remarkable one off - a high-point of Australian winemaking.

Exquisite "On the QT" Malbec - sneak peak preview

For our Bin 11 "On the QT" Malbec we're expecting very high demand, so here's a preview for regular "On the QT" fans. It's sourced from a single vineyard in Mendoza and hand-crafted by one of the greatest estates in all Argentina: Zuccardi. By all accounts, it is one of the finest, most intense, seductively textured Malbecs we've ever tasted. Be sure to pop back soon.
