We are really excited to bring Mark’s Cornas into the U.S. again for our customers. We know what such labor of love this is for Mark to go through the effort of vinifying a wine in the Northern Rhone and are thrilled with how brilliant the finished product has turned out to be.
Mark Haisma was named a “Top 25 Producers to Watch” by Tim Atkin
“He seems to have struck gold. His wines have an excellent balance between fruit, expression and refreshment without being in any way wimpish. The wines are also, appetisingly, bone dry.” -Jancis Robinson
Mark spent a decade working together with the late Dr. Bailey Carrodus of Yarra Yering in the Yarra Valley. His passion for making a wine that expresses the purity of the fruit and further reflects the soil they are grown is what drew him to Burgundy. He makes wines that are bright and fresh and uses a ‘hands off’ approach to create a pure expression of the terroir.
Mark is on Jancis Robinsins list of “Overperformers” for 2014.
