Ponting Wines

Craft. Quality. Dedication.

When two masters of their craft join forces, it’s hard not to get excited. That’s exactly how we felt when we heard about Ponting Wines. It’s a collaboration between Ricky Ponting, one of Australia’s most celebrated cricketers, and Ben Riggs, an award-winning winemaker. The result? A range of high-quality wines that celebrate Ricky’s remarkable career.

The luxury gift box gurus over at The Hamper Emporium are now partnering with Ponting Wines. Cricket, food, and wine fans alike will adore these exclusive new hampers, and we are beyond excited to stock them.

Ricky: ‘It’s been in the works for about a year and a half, and the wines have been out there for four or five months. It’s been something that we’ve really loved working on together. The brand is going really well, which is exciting, and the experience has been a lot of fun.

“Since I retired from cricket, life has been about being the best husband and father I can be.”

‘The Pinnacle’ Shiraz is an ode to the Ashes, cricket’s most famous battle. Having played 168 tests, Ricky Ponting always saw it as the pinnacle of the sport. This big Shiraz is complemented by a selection of gourmet nibbles—kalamata olives, beer nuts, and capsicum tapenade, just to name a few.
