World’s End Winery

California, USA

Born in Nigeria, winemaking is Jonathan Maltus’ second career. The wines he makes “are generally structured, forthright and assertive – a bit like Jonathan himself!” Educated in the UK, he was initially involved in the Oil and Petro-Chemical industry. A mid-life, two year winemaking apprenticeship in Cahors was followed by the purchase of Château Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru. In 2008 his next adventure was to set up World’s End Estate - making single vineyard and Reserve wines in the Napa Valley – which has enjoyed huge success and produced critically acclaimed wines.

An obsessive about the effect of terroir on wines, Jonathan purposefully seeks out vineyards that will provide the very best grapes to produce high-level fine wine. This wine is sourced from a number of different vineyards which all have something in common – they are from the classic valley floor, cool climate hill or mountain vineyards. Each element brings to the final blend different values – a richness from the valley and a raciness from the mountains.
