Overview

The fruit for this wine originates from the Awatere and Wairau valleys in Marlborough. Expert canopy management, including shoot thinning and leaf plucking, has ensured vine health, ideal vineyard flavours and clean, ripe fruit. The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to ensure it arrived at the winery in pristine condition. The 2012 vintage was unique due to a three week extension in the grapes’ ripening period resulting in wines with pronounced aromatics, concentration and flavour.

Founded in 1961 by current owner and Managing Director, George Fistonich, Villa Maria is a privately owned winery.

Villa Maria produces New Zealand's most awarded wines and has achieved acclaim, both nationally and internationally since the early 1980's.  This outstanding achievement is due to an uncompromising commitment and dedication to quality at all stages of the grape growing and winemaking processes.

Villa Maria sources grapes from each of New Zealand's premium grape growing regions: Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and produces wines in two state of the art wineries situated in Marlborough and Auckland. Villa Maria was the first major wine company in New Zealand to seal their wines with screwcaps, ensuring their wine reaches the consumer just as the winemaker intended.
