My first experience with New Zealand was in 1984 when I met my wife Leslie. Later, while living in New Zealand, we enjoyed exceptional local wines. After returning to live in the USA, we noticed these local New Zealand wines were not available. Wanting to share these fun wines with friends, we began the discovery process, to import them for distribution in the central & western USA.

After many conversations, tastings and much research, we selected the wines you will find here. They are an outstanding collection of wines from the diverse terroir of New Zealand, made by people who enjoy what they do. These classic boutique New Zealand jewels complement each other and will make you smile!

Everyone agrees food & wine are a great combination. New Zealand Food Wines takes this experience to a new level. Here you will find New Zealand fine wine, food and travel ideas.

Many people have experienced the current phenomenon of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. This is only the beginning for exploring & discovering the food friendly wines of New Zealand. Today, Old World blends meet New World ideas: Sparkling wine, Riesling, Chardonnay, and of course, Pinot Noir, are all available for your discovery & enjoyment.

Terroir is often cited as the source of great wines. That's true, but the truly exciting wines all involve individuals who make exceptional wines. It is these artisan winemakers who make truly distinctive food wines.

Try the different Sauvignon Blancs and you will begin to experience the power of people and terroir. Continue on with Pinot Noir and you will sense the magic of New Zealand!

We have watched many people taste these wines and smile, and then the comments consistently follow:

"Elegant, Wow ... Beautiful, Great with seafood ... Grilled lamb, Duck or Venison ... Thanks for stopping and sharing ... Well made, Great fruit flavor & balance, Wonderful food wines ... Would make great gifts..."

It is these experiences that have created the confidence to recommend them to you. We appreciate your efforts in seeking them out and sharing them with friends.
