Just outside of Renwick, in Marlborough, John and Brigid Forrest have been crafting wines since the late 1980’s.
Coming back to their family roots, the Forrests have farmed the region for generations. After successful careers in research and medicine, the young family came back from living and working overseas to get a start on a fairly green New Zealand wine industry.
The first vintage for Forrest Wines came in 1990, when an over filled red wine fermenter “accident” resulted in a trophy winner Merlot Rosé.
Fast forward almost 30 years, many awards and accolades, 5 labels and vineyards across the country, Forrest is set for generations.
