Just like the many other wineries of the pristine areas of Central Otago, Wild Earth pride and passion is their Pinot. The clay, schist, silty loam soils and alpine climate produce a wine that is one of a kind. Each year the precious terroir gives luscious bunches of Pinot pleasure. Each exciting vintage is blessed with a new understanding, as caretakers of this land. Wild Earth is a boutique family owned winery who produce award winning Pinot Noir and also have some wonderful examples of aromatic Pinot Gris, sweet and dry style Rieslings and beautiful Pinot Noir Rosé and we are now onto our fourth Chardonnay vintage! They only use French oak for barrel maturation.

Jen has a depth of international winemaking experience including in the USA, France, South Africa and Australia. She has completed 15 harvests in NZ and is approaching 28 vintages overall.
