New Zealand is renowned for the quality of its wine, produced in expansive, mountainous landscapes of real and untouched beauty.
Forrest is one of the country’s finest exports who uphold the southern hemisphere’s fine reputation, exporting premium quality wines from vineyards in the Marlborough region.
John and Brigid Forrest are the team behind the brand. Both former doctors, the married couple have been furthering their passion for wine since 1988. Taking a hands-on approach they are now producing premium quality white wine from their home vineyards in Marlborough; the Cornerstone Bordeaux red from their vineyard in Hawke's Bay; and premium Pinot Noir from their vineyards in Bannockburn and the Waitaki Valley, Otago.
Leaving behind careers in molecular biology and medicine, they see grape growing and winemaking has an exacting science, but with an artistic touch that give the wines soul. This individual expression of style is the trademark of their wines - rich aromatic white wine, and powerfully scented reds - all impeccably structured and a joy to drink.
