Welcome - a letter from Trevor Bolitho
2013 is a big year for Waimea.
It marks 20 years since Waimea was founded by my wife Robyn and myself. And it sees us having grown from just a few hectares to 150 hectares of many varieties.We are proudly family owned – our son Ben has a great passion for viticulture and is Viticulturist of Waimea’s vineyards. He has also been General Manager since 2010.
One of our greatest pleasures is seeing Waimea wine being enjoyed around the world by so many. It is a long process from bud-break of a brand new crop – nurturing it in the vineyard and harvesting and delivering it safely to the winery where with minimal intervention our winery crew cares for it. It is then bottled with care and passed along to our marketing team for national and international markets where it reaches your table and is enjoyed by Waimea fans in many countries around the globe.
Adding weight to the quality of our wines, we are exceptionally proud to have collected over 100 Gold Medals and almost two dozen trophies in national and international competitions.
We hope you enjoy our wines as much as we enjoy making them.
