Leading winemakers announce partnership with Kinross

Leading winemakers announce exclusive partnership with Gibbston’s Kinross Cottages and General Store

Renowned New Zealand winemakers Hawkshead, Valli, Domaine Thompson, Wild Irishman and Soho have formed an exclusive wine partnership with Gibbston’s Kinross Cottages and General Store.

Perfectly positioned half way between Queenstown and Bannockburn, Kinross now operates as the exclusive Gibbston cellar door for this stellar group of winemakers. Brought together under one roof for the first time, their stories are entwined in the history of New Zealand wine making, and Kinross is the perfect hub to be drawn into their world.

Wild Irishman is Alan Brady's boutique label. Known as the “Grandfather’ of Gibbston, Kinross is the only retail environment where you can taste and buy his wine. Valli and Hawkshead are both multiple award winning labels with their vines neighbouring Kinross.

Soho has made a name for itself by specialising in the best of each New Zealand wine region, with their McQueen Central Otago Pinot Noir (made by Grant Taylor of Valli) winning gold at the 2015 Speigelau International Wine Competition.

Domaine Thompson is a family owned producer, with vineyards in Lowburn Central Otago and Gevrey-Chambertin, France. They are dedicated to making the finest Pinot Noir in two hemispheres – wines that express the individual terroir of each region.

Kinross’s owner Christine Erkkila is excited by the partnership “Currently we represent five outstanding wine makers, each offering something unique and special. But watch this space, we will shortly have a sixth partner - a new, local Gibbston label launching very shortly!”
