Georges Road

Kirk Bray, owner of Georges Road Wines, is a graduate (with Distinction) from Lincoln University’s Post-Graduate Diploma course for Viticulture and Oenology.  After soaking up vintage cellar experience at wineries in Canterbury, Waipara, France, California and Germany, Kirk moved to Germany full time where he spent a further two years winemaking  (and cementing his growing love of Riesling, the king of the aromatic wines.) Returning to New Zealand in 2003, and inspired by the family owned and quality focussed wineries of Europe, Kirk and his wife Alison bought a piece of prime vineyard land in Waipara.

Georges Road Wines possesses a rare quality among todays wineries of New Zealand – From the grape through to the glass Kirk is intimately involved in all aspects of the business, with complete connection to the final wine in the bottle. Georges Road is his vision of a single vineyard Waipara terroir. It is a constantly evolving labour of love.

“Handcrafted from start to finish, our single vineyard wines combine the best of our individual New World terroir matched with a European inspired winemaking outlook. Our wines are balanced and elegant, complex, food friendly and highly enjoyable.”
