Hawkesbridge is one of the New Zealand Wine Society's most-decorated brands with a strong history of Trophies and Golds, particularly for the Méthodes and Chardonnays.
In 1990 Mike and Judy Veal bought 16 hectare of prime grape-growing land in Marlborough. The New Zealand Wine Society were so impressed with the set-up and the quality of their fruit that they made them an offer they couldn't refuse.
While they no longer own the vineyard, they do carry the wines, which include the region’s most successful varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and a Méthode Traditionnelle.
Hawkesbridge is proud to be an accredited Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) member. That means their grape-growing and winemaking practices protect the environment – and they’re continually working to make them even better. New Zealand’s wine industry is something special and the Hawkesbridge is committed to doing whatever it takes to protect it while crafting delicious wines for you. It’s a philosophy that’s paid off. Many of their wines have won “Pure Gold”, “Pure Silver” and “Pure Bronze” medals and the “Pure” awards only go to sustainably grown and produced wine. Continue reading →
