Vintessential - 25 Years of Excellence

What’s in a Name?

Our name ‘Vintessential’ is derived from the word Quintessence.

Quintessence, literally meaning ‘fifth essence’, refers to Ether – the theoretical fifth element that sits above Earth, Wind, Water and Fire in medieval alchemy.

Its adjective form, quintessential, is used to describe something that is in its most perfect or purest state, just like the wines that Vintessential helps to create.

2019 Mornington Peninsula Wine Show

Last Friday, Vintessential’s Wally Ceccato was pleased to be part of the 2019 Mornington Peninsula Vignerons Wine Show in Victoria. Wally was honoured to help on the day—presenting the award for Best Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio to the 2018 Willow Creek Pinot Gris. 

“We have been using the Vintessential Laboratory since the inception of Red Hill Brewery 14 years ago. Having a resource to accurately test and report on potential issues has been invaluable. Over the years we have used them to test everything from Water quality and Salts breakdown, to beer quality control, alcohol testing, pH probe calibration and more. The pH probe we bought from them 14 years ago is about the only equipment still working 14 years later. They are great to deal with and the quick turnaround helps us make better beer.”
