Zonte’s Footstep has been on a quest to find and grow the world’s best white varities in regions that express the fruit’s best attributes for more than a decade.



The Doctoressa di Lago, or Lake Doctor is a cooling breeze that courses over Lake Alexandrina from the Great Southern Ocean which arrives each summer afternoon to revive our vines and vignerons alike from the summer heat of the day. Our beloved Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio vineyard, overlooks in the distance the blue beauty of Lake Alexandrina in the distant south longing for relief she produces.

James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

“Made in a ‘clinical’ fashion to preserve freshness and purity of fruit. Plenty of juicy varietal character to be found, with sweet pear and musky spice all through the bouquet and palate. Certainly fresh, and nicely textured, the acidity gathers at the finish in timely fashion. Pretty much does everything asked of it with ease.”
