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.
All in all a pure pear Pinot Grigio with excellent lifted smells and deft acidity that make it the perfect aperitif of wine for shellfish. Delicate and delightful.

Wine Review Online, Rich Cook, 20th January 2015
“You didn’t hear much about Italian varieties in the Australian wine world, but Zonte’s Footstep winemaker Ben Riggs is quietly establishing his new home for Pinot Grigio and other Italian grapes. This bottling is very attractive on the nose, showing bright lemon, lime, white flowers and stony minerality. Racy acidity without any sharp edges helps the aromas come alive as flavours in your mouth, adding a touch of apple to this creamy yet cleansing wine. Oysters or fresh green salads will be elevated with this is a pairing. A Platinum Award winner at the 2015 San Diego International Wine Competition.”
