Ponting Wines

Ponting Wines is a collaboration between one of Australia’s most celebrated cricketers, Ricky Ponting and Ben Riggs, an award-winning Australian winemaker known for uncompromising, high quality wines. Masters of their craft, their partnership has been forged to celebrate their dedication and achievements.
Each wine reflects Ricky’s life and has been carefully crafted by Ben to ensure flavour, structure and complexity are of the highest quality.

Ponting 366 is the pride of the collection, an extraordinary wine that celebrates Ricky Ponting’s extraordinary career. A testimony to 168 Tests, 13,378 runs and 41 magnificent centuries. Ben has crafted a classically Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet from the famous regions of McLaren Vale and the Coonawarra to create a wine that will stand the test of time.

The Tasmanian Chardonnay and the Mowbray Boy Pinot Noir are born from Ricky’s love of Tasmania. These wines acknowledge his family heritage and his formative years at the Mowbray Cricket Club as a child protege, who would one day captain his country.

The Pinnacle McLaren Vale Shiraz honours the most famous of all cricket battles, the Ashes. Ricky’s career against England was uncompromising, with no quarter asked or given of his opponents, from 35 tests played, he captained 18, scored eight centuries and 2,476 test runs.

The Close of Play Langhorne Creek Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of great character and style. A wine that acknowledges the special moments with teammates and the tradition of raising a glass with team mates at the close of play and is the perfect “Finale” for any get together.

Ponting Wines is a celebration of Ben and Ricky’s commitment, dedication and achievements in their chosen crafts.
