For as far back as scrolls could roll, poets, philosophers and even the common man have only sung praises for the majestic grape. Sight, smell, swirl, taste and repeat—that’s the motto we like to live by. Taking the love for vino a notch higher, former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting recently ventured into the world of wineries.

The cricketing legend launched his own range of fine wines in collaboration with award-winning Australian wine-maker and founder of Mr Riggs Wine Company, Ben Riggs, under the label ‘Ponting Wines’. Carefully crafted to ensure the highest quality of flavour, structure and complexity, each wine has been named after a significant event in Ponting’s career. Wines that are currently available include Pioneer Chardonnay, Mowbray Boy Pinot Noir, Pinnacle McLaren Vale Shiraz, and close of Play Langhorne Creek Cabernet Sauvignon.
