If ever a film were made about New Zealand wine, John Belsham would be the leading man. He cut his winemaking teeth in Bordeaux before becoming one of New Zealand's most highly-regarded winemakers. In 1992 he established Foxes Island Wines, an estate in Marlborough's coveted Awatere sub-region, to focus on exquisitely made wine. His wines are now sought the world over and the accolades keep coming.
We're delighted to offer you a range of his wines; each combining centuries of French winemaking technique with pure, single-vineyard Awatere fruit. The winery has the most extensive cellar ageing program for their single vineyard and icon wines on release in NZ.
The result is magical. Order yours today and experience something special.
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling
