From the moment he took over the leadership of Norton, Michael had the wisdom to choose the talents he wanted to work with, so he called upon two of the best winemakers in the country and the world to create the best wines possible: Jorge Riccitelli and David Bonomi.

2000 – 2004 – Michael Halstrick was awarded «Wine Industry Businessman of the Year», and Norton was included in the Top 100 most admired Argentine companies by two of the most important newspapers in Argentina (La Nación and Clarín).

2012 – Jorge Riccitelli was named Winemaker of the Year by Wine Enthusiast, becoming the first Argentine winemaker to win this title.
