About winemaker, Rosie Menzies:
Rosie Menzies joined Carrick in late 2018. Originally from Hawke’s Bay, Rosie’s interest in wine was sparked by her charismatic 6th form chemistry teacher, who tasked students with making their own wine as a special project. Inspired to make it her career, she completed the Graduate Diploma in Viticulture and Oenology at Lincoln University in 2007. Since graduating, Rosie has worked at some of the world’s finest producers – Craggy Range (Hawke’s Bay), Seresin (Marlborough), GD Vajra (Piemonte, Italy), Chapoutier (Rhone Valley), and Cristom (Oregon).
Her travels around the globe also developed her respect for the influence of organic principles in wine farming and production, a quality that is inherent to Carrick.
Carrick has always been about place. Our name derives from the old gold mining town and mountain range to which we overlook. The symbol of the ‘Carrick Bend’ on our labels is symbolic of the union between our land and our people.
To express this beautiful place, we make wines using only hand-picked, organically-certified, estate-grown fruit, with 100% indigenous yeast and minimal winery additions. Find out more >
