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.


Our Chardonnay comes from one of the finest cool-climate vineyards located in the Adelaide HIlls. The soils in this vineyard are ancient; research estimates the soils are 1800 million years old, mostly gravel with limestone/calcium silicates and ferrous pebbles spread throughout. Hand-pruned, harvested and made it is our holotype for Chardonnay.
