Description

The Ribbonwood wines are made by Andrew Hedley, an Englishman from Gateshead with a PhD in Applied Chemistry. Andrew moved to New Zealand in 1993; five years later, he began pursuing his passion for winemaking. The name of this range comes from the Ribbonwood trees, New Zealand’s tallest native deciduous species, which grow around the vineyard in Renwick. Sensitive to the environmental responsibility they have for their surroundings, Andrew and his team have also planted more than 1,000 native shrubs and trees to enhance the biodiversity of the vineyard and improve their wastewater management systems. They also use light-weight bottles and recycled cartons to reduce their carbon footprint.
