Overview

Grape

Chardonnay

Its Origins

In 1961, at just 21 years of age, George Fistonich leased five acres of land from his father in Mangere, Auckland and started off with just an acre of vines. He harvested his first grapes in 1962 and made his first wine under the name Villa Maria. Throughout the 1960s Villa Maria was a one-man band, with George’s wife, Gail, supporting him in his venture. He made dry red and white wines, sourcing grapes from the greater Auckland regions. In the early 1970s he started to employ staff and the company began to expand rapidly. Today, Villa Maria employs more than 250 permanent staff and exports wine to over 50 countries worldwide.

What The Critics Say

5 Stars Michael Cooper

"The stylish, tightly structured 2018 vintage has a fragrant, slightly smoky bouquet. Mouthfilling and youthful, it has vigorous, ripe stone-fruit flavours, gently seasoned with toasty oak, impressive intensity and a long finish."
