Founded by Alan Brady in 1997, Mount Edward Winery is nestled at the foot of the mountain from which it takes its name, in Gibbston, approximately 25 km east of Queenstown in Central Otago, New Zealand. The winery was a personal project by one of the region's pioneers aimed at growing limited quantities of premium Pinot Noir and Riesling; wines that would reflect the soils and climates of Central Otago. The vineyards are operated organically and are Bio Gro certified.
In 2004 Mount Edward expanded, taking on partners John Buchanan and Duncan Forsyth. John and Duncan brought similar passions for winegrowing, winemaking experience, and a drive to take Mount Edward to the next level. Their winemaking is traditional, they use natural yeasts and minimal intervention at all stages with their wines reflecting the vintage from which they came. These are hand-crafted wines, with only 6,000 cases produced annually on average. Mount Edward is still on that same path today; a small team of people dedicated to growing wines of the highest order.
