Two Golds for Villa Maria Organic Wines

NZ Organic Wine Awards Gold Medal Winners:
Villa Maria Single Vineyard The Attorney Organic Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013
Villa Maria Single Vineyard Templar Organic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015 

Wednesday 25 May



New Zealand Organic Wine Awards Gold medal winners:
Villa Maria Single Vineyard The Attorney Organic Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013
Villa Maria Single Vineyard Templar Organic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015


Senior Marlborough Winemaker Helen Morrison said that recognition for these wines was great for the team who put a huge effort into creating them, “Producing organic wine takes a lot of dedication and passion. To achieve great quality wines like these and receive medals is wonderful affirmation to consumers that organic wines are truly made in the vineyard and organic winemaking is simply protecting and enhancing the quality of the fruit delivered to us,” she said.

Villa Maria introduced organic principles to the vineyard in 2001 and in 2007 were the first winery to achieve BioGro Organic certification from grape to bottle. The first organically certified wine was the 2009 Villa Maria Cellar Selection Merlot, which quickly picked up a gold medal on release at the New Zealand International Wine Show.

The ‘New Zealand Organic Wine Awards’ is the first NZ based award to focus exclusively on certified organic wine with the goal of increasing the market share of organic wine within New Zealand, and help consumers to easily identify and select a quality organic wine.
