Karl discovered that great winemakers are not exclusively behind the finest and most expensive wines. As winemakers from the New World have demonstrated what can be achieved with the right level of passion and skill, the Old World has quietly been going through a revolution. There are so many exciting wines from lesser-known regions and smaller estates, but their production levels are too small for the supermarkets to ship, so very few wine drinkers will hear about them. Unlucky for them, but good news for Elwood Selection’s clients.
Karl looks for the personality behind the label – the growers who make excellent wine with a history, small batch estates whose livelihood depends on the sustainability of their product. He works with modern winemakers who are not stuck in tradition but make the wine that is true to themselves and loved by their buyers.
