- THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: „World’s end is the brainchild of Jonathan Maltus. Jonathan Maltus is much better known for making wine in St. Emilion from a variety of different terroirs. Maltus also makes wine in Australia. Chateau Le Dome and Chateau Teyssier are his 2 best known Right Bank wines. You’d think with all that experience producing Right Bank wines, he would focus on Merlot and Cabernet Franc. But that is not the case here.
Jonathan Maltus loves music. That is part of reason I always enjoy a visit with him, as we have played rock music trivia pursuit and name that tune, where you wager on how fast you can name in song. Obviously, his love for music found its way to the World’s End wines, which is the inspiration for all of his wines names as you will see.
The main sources for grapes used to produce World’s End wines comes from To Kalon Missouri Hooper, Vineyard D Missouri Hooper, Vineyard B Circle S, Coombsville Sugarloaf Mountain Beckstoffer Vineyard, Georges III Carneros Lake Vineyard, Pritchard Hill and the Stagecoach vineyard. Several of the wines are Left Bank Bordeaux styled blends with various amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.“
