Alpine Wine Co. is the next wave of wine producers in NZ.
It was born in 2018 out of a desire to push the boundaries in a typically conservative wine market.
Put simply, our goal is to:
make delicious wine,
and have fun.
Ben is the Winemaker for Alpine Wine Co. His philosophy is centred around sourcing quality grapes, and where possible to ensure they are grown using organic viticultural practices. Following this, his winemaking is based on minimal intervention. Trusting and respecting the quality of the grapes by not interfering. This results in wines with loads of flavour and character.
Ben first fell hard for grapes and wine in 2009 when he spent time in the Beaujolais region of France. The camaraderie of harvest was contagious. As was the juicy Gamay they drank with every meal.
Ben has a Post-Graduate Diploma in Viticulture and Oenology. Following his studies he has spent the majority of his winemaking career at Amisfield in Central Otago, where he is currently the Assistant Winemaker.
We are excited for the future of Alpine Wine Co.
We are super proud of the wines we have created.
And we have made them for you. We can’t wait for you to try.
