Regarded as one of Australasia's most respected winemakers & critics, John Belsham founded Foxes Island in 1992 to focus on exquisitely made, regionally expressive wines; exactly what he had learned to do in France.
Notably recognised as a Pinot Noir producer, Belsham planted the Awatere Estate with its seven distinct terraces in 2000. The vineyard is planted primarily to Pinot Noir with select blocks of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling.
The Foxes Island CIty Cellar Door is located in Auckland - in the heart of Ponsonby-Grey Lynn.
