WAIPARA HILLS

In their relatively short history, Waipara Hills have accumulated more than 200 awards, a glittering hoard that would, no doubt, have the acquisitive Smaug salivating. It’s an impressive record that reinforces just how consistently good their wines are.

From their home base in the Waipara Valley, the company operates three vineyards: The Home Block, The Deans and The Mound, source of fruit for the flagship, limited edition Equinox range. Recognising their worth, Waipara Hills have also expanded into prime parts of Marlborough and Central Otago, with their Waipara Hills range showcasing the very best of the South Island.

Head winemaker, Simon McGeorge, puts it thus: “Our vineyards yield superb fruit, so our approach is to produce wines with as little interference as possible, to allow the characteristics of each season’s fruit to shine and create wines that are distinctly from our place.”

Simon McGeorge

After growing up on a farm and studying winemaking at Lincoln University in Christchurch, Simon perfected his skills during a number of vintages around the world. He worked four vintages in the States, including a spell in Russian River, California, followed by a vintage in the Loire Valley, France. On returning to New Zealand, Simon finally settled in the Waipara Valley; a small community of passionate, friendly and dedicated people that put their heart into everything they do. Simon has held the Winemaker role at Waipara Hills since 2006 and loves the aromatic varieties from this emerging wine region, especially Riesling and Pinot Gris. “I love the zing and drive of Riesling; and the rich and yet subtle sides of Pinot Gris”. Several years on, Simon has played an instrumental role in forging the wine style of Waipara Hills. He considers himself to be more of a guardian, rather than a director, ensuring the wine reflects the vintage and vineyard in the Waipara region it hails from.
