At Giesen wines, they believe that its people that make wine come to life. The Giesen brothers behind the winery have been making wine for over 30 years. They currently offer four different ranges; The Estate, The Brothers, The Organic and The August 1888. They also make a variety of red, white and dessert wines, with the goal of 'transporting the drinking on a journey of taste sensation'.
When the Giesen brothers moved to New Zealand from Germany, they were originally planning on starting a stone company, similar to their family business back in Germany. Luckily for us, they brought land just outside of Christchurch and planted vines instead.
