About Waipara Hills:
Established in 2001, Waipara Hills wines have become famous for their intensity, character and complexity – a result of the innate contrasts in climate in New Zealand’s deep South. Known as the ‘soul of the south’, Waipara Hills wines have received more than 200 awards in less than 10 years – from the Air New Zealand Wine awards to the International Wine Challenge in the UK, the company’s achievements reflect the broad appeal of its wines.
About Simon McGeorge – Winemaker, Waipara Hills:
After completing a degree in commerce and marketing, Simon studied winemaking at Lincoln University in Canterbury. He then spent several years travelling between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres working harvest and following styles and winemaking techniques, until he was offered a fulltime position at De Loach Vineyards in the Russian River, California in 1999. After four seasons Simon travelled to France for his next harvest and made wine in the Loire.
Simon then travelled back to New Zealand to take on the role of Assistant Winemaker at Esk Valley Estate, owned by Villa Maria. In three short years he was promoted to Winemaker and worked with a wide range of varietals, using traditional and innovative winemaking methods.
In 2006 he was excited to be offered a role as winemaker at Waipara Hills, an opportunity to work in an emerging wine region with aromatic varieties such as Riesling and Pinot Gris, two of Simon’s favourites. Several years on, Simon has played an instrumental role in forging the direction of the Waipara Hills wine styles, seeking to reflect both the region that they come from and the people that work to create them.
