Its Origins

Odyssey Wines is owned by Rebecca Salmond. Rebecca's voyage into winemaking began at Massey University in New Zealand and Adelaide University's Roseworthy College in Australia, where she graduated with a degree in Biotechnology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Winemaking Science. She then travelled and worked in some of the world's finest wine and culinary regions: Burgundy, Bordeaux and Cote Rotie in France; Alto Adige and Sicily in Italy; Marlborough and Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. Rebecca launched her label Odyssey in 1994, with small amounts of premium wines. Odyssey now has 25 acres of land in Marlborough's Brancott Valley under vine. Rebecca's well-honed philosophy sees her making only subtle adjustments to the wine, and using where appropriate the finest oaks. All wines are single vineyard. Odyssey Wines has garnered a number of accolades and awards.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2016 vintage)

"This is a gorgeous chardonnay offering elegance as well as generosity, displaying ripe stone fruit, rockmelon, vanilla and hazelnut characters with a hint of brioche complexity on the nose. The palate is succulent and beautifully weighted, and shows creamy texture and attractive fruit intensity, wonderfully supported by juicy acidity. The wine is poised and refined, and should evolve gracefully. At its best: now to 2020. $32.00. www.odysseywines.co.nz. June 2017." Drink 2017 - 2020
