Making a statement with understated elegance

Winery Design in New Zealand For a small country with a relatively young wine industry (at least on the international level), New Zealand really has made a name for themselves over recent years. The wines retain an air of mystery that is somewhat unique in this ever-shrinking modern world of ours.

New Zealand's remote location, not to mention the wineries’, coupled with the almost mythic beauty of the land, lends an aura of something unique and special to their wines. With so much unspoiled beauty, it’s interesting to see how the nascent wine industry has responded to the demands of a modern and growing community.

Predictably, the architecture of many of New Zealand’s finest wineries is understated and designed to fit into, as opposed to compete with, the glorious landscapes that surround these vines. Let’s take a look at some of New Zealand’s most striking wineries.

  • Yealands' Sauv Blanc was a startling surprise discovery on a recent trip to Australia. Different - almost shocking - flowery notes. Recommended by a local. One of the memorable highlights of the trip. Trying to find some over here (in Wyoming). Or, it may have been the setting on a sailboat. Good luck.

  • All Yealands Estate wines worth trying, fresh, lively and aromatic. Particularly impressed with their Viognier.

    A lovely story exists about them using guinea pigs to maincure the grass between vines in an eco-friendly fashion, only for the local hawks to enjoy the flavour of the guinea pigs too much, so that had to be abandoned...
