Here is a little profile about Phillip Jones, the founder of Bass Phillip Wines and a ProCork user since 2007. He is well known to Pinot Noir connoisseurs worldwide and in Australia he and his wine have reached icon status where his Bass Phillip Reserve 2010 won the 2014 Wine of the Year by James Halliday.

"Make no mistake about it ... this a brilliant Pinot Noir, undoubtedly one of the finest being produced in Australia. Cote de Nuits-like characteristics are evident in the gorgeously sweet, plum, berry, and cherry fruit flavors infused with cinnamon and allspice. .... full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, with superb purity, creamy, big, thick, Burgundian-like texture … and a long, concentrated finish. Extremely complex, … this is beautifully made wine. .... a brilliant effort." ROBERT M. PARKER JR, The Wine Advocate

Bass Phillip was judged the overall most preferred wine at the “Domaine de la Romanee Conti vs the World” Blind Tasting 2011 Singapore, http://hermitagewine.com/events/domaine-de-la-romanee-conti-world-blind-tasting-results/

To understand the man is to understand determination and meticulous attention to the details that count. He cuts away the unnecessary pomp and pursues the essence. A maverick? He has certainly made his own way and followed his own intuitive sense. With his wines reaching stellar heights in price and collectability, Phillip Jones has proven to be particularly canny.

His response says it all, when reminded his wine was judged the overall most preferred wine in the 2011 “Domaine de la Romanee Conti vs the World” Blind Tasting held in Singapore with wine journalists and connoisseurs, he shows humble acceptance and gives a quiet nod to the forces of nature. He has journeyed 39 years creating a vineyard where nature makes the wine with just a light touch here and a gentle nudge there from his magic hand.

Phillip Jones’s thoughts on ProCork – “The ProCork cork has been a faultless closure for us since we commenced using it for the 2007’s’’
