Hedonism meets... Chris Ringland
The first in a series of interviews with top winemakers and distillers, we sit down for an in-depth interview with one of Australia's most revered winemakers - Chris Ringland.
Chris has been crafting critically acclaimed Barossa Valley wines for 30 years. Tiny releases of world-beating Shiraz made his name in the 1990s, but he has since garnered acclaim as the flying winemaker for top Spanish winery Bodegas El Nido, making not one, but two of the Jumilla's finest reds. We caught up with Chris in the midst of the Australian winter to talk about life in the vines, making wine during the pandemic and working in a pickle factory...

Red Burgundy 2015
Heralded as one of the greatest vintages of the last 20 years, Decanter Magazine described the harvest as "extraordinary" and the reds "truly great" while Jancis Robinson hailed them as "seriously impressive". At the higher levels, Premier Cru and Grand Cru, this is certainly a vintage for laying down and enjoying in 5-10 years, but the Village wines are offering great pleasure even at this early stage.
Now is a great time to fill the cellar before these wines become as desirable as the 2002s, 2005s and 2009s.
Mezcal - Mexico's Hidden Spirit
Often over-shadowed by it's more famous sibling Tequila, Mezcal is truly one of the world's great spirits. Produced in minuscule quantities in the tiny pueblos of Oaxaca and beyond, the complexity of Mezcal and its depth of flavour have led many to compare these unique distillations to the peated malts of Islay.
Here at Hedonism, we have nearly 50 different artisan Mezcals from some of the country's finest fábricas including Pensador, Alipus, Del Maguey, Bozal, Tosba and Koch.
The Fine Wines of California
Ever since Steven Spurrier's famous Judgement of Paris in the 1970s, the wine world has held the fine wines of California in the same regard as the very best examples from Bordeaux and Burgundy. Names like Screaming Eagle, Marcassin, Shafer Vineyards, Abreu and Harlan take pride of place on the wine lists of some of the greatest restaurants and in the cellars of connoisseurs worldwide.
Here at Hedonism we have over 1,000 different wines from California including rare vintages back to the 1970s and cult wines unavailable anywhere else.
