‘Wild Rock’ is a producer of premium crafted wines situated in New Zealand’s prime wine-growing districts of Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough. Modern, unconstrained, and memorable wines that speak uniquely of New Zealand and showcase some of the country's best-known varietals. Marlborough was selected as it is renowned for aromatic whites and Pinot Noir. Hawke’s Bay is well established for its diverse range of soils and microclimates that create endless possibilities for wine growing.
The name ‘Wild Rock’ has a rather delightful history which comes from when Captain James Cook and Sir Joseph Banks took their first great voyage in 1769 they encountered the coastline of New Zealand. Stories have it that they saw a wild rock formation clear as day from their ships. Joseph Banks shortly after discovered the land which was brimming with wildlife - mainly birds - plants he had never seen before and soil that was so rich in volcanic matter. He found these areas had been farmed incredibly well by the native Maori blessed with long sunshine hours and access to fresh, pure water. It would later be known his findings here would lay the groundwork for modern day Botany. The ‘Wild Rock’ labels with their detailed imagery, reference Cook's initial impression of the flora and fauna rock face. Visit the Wild Rock Website.
