Craft. Quality. Dedication.
How are you finding working in the wine industry?
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.

Ponting ‘The Pinnacle’ Shiraz Hamper
‘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.
Ponting Premium Foodies Hamper
This hamper will surely impress a red lover. Featuring ‘The Pinnacle’ Shiraz, a nod to Ricky’s uncompromising career facing England, the palate of black pepper and red berries goes perfectly with gourmet nibbles. Tasmanian black truffle paste, milk chocolate macadamias, and more will have them smiling.
Ponting Red & White Nibbles Hamper
Red and white wine fans will adore this spread. The ‘First Session’ Sauvignon Blanc is balanced perfectly with the ‘Close of Play’ Cabernet Sauvignon. The former is fruity and fresh, and the latter, rich and deep. Served with artisan crackers, semi-dried tomato halves, and quince paste, it’s truly iconic.
Ponting Wine with Chocolates & Nuts
This one is made for a sweet tooth. ‘The Pinnacle’ Shiraz is paired with indulgent nibbles from Sydney brand Morgan’s.
