Every brand in our portfolio has a great story. And we’re passionate about representing them - and the inspiring characters that have brought them to life.
Tracy Banner heads the small and enthusiastic Sprig & Fern Brewery Team that are based in Richmond, about 10 minutes from Nelson City. Every batch is hand-brewed with a level of care and attention to quality that has earned Sprig & Fern a solid reputation amongst real craft beer drinkers throughout New Zealand. Our beers and ciders are produced using all-natural ingredients and are unpasteurised to retain their full flavour. We encourage you to keep it well-refrigerated to maintain quality and freshness.
8 Wired Brewing is inspired by the legendary Kiwi can-do mentality and fellow craft brewers who have dared to challenge the masses and show us all that beer is no longer “just beer”!
After several years of contract brewing, eventually at four different breweries across New Zealand we now finally have our very own brewery where we brew and package everything.
In the past venturesome years, Joseph and Christina Wood have taken Liberty beers from their garage in New Plymouth to all over NZ. With demand for Liberty beer continuing to outstrip supply, the Woods finally built their own brewery in Helensville in 2015.
Liberty’s brewing has always been about its customers and as long as there are boundaries to cross, rules to break and lines to blur, Liberty will be central, continuing to brew with zero compromise on quality.
Dark Horse is possible because of the unstoppable visionaries who pour everything into creating these shockingly good wines. Based in Modesto, California, this tireless team has taken Dark Horse from complete unknown to a real contender.
Leading the charge is Beth Liston, a winemaker crazy enough to believe that with the right planning and technique, a reasonably priced wine could actually be ridiculously good. Pretty bold if you think about it.
Gunn Estate bears the name of its founding family. It began in the 1980’s, on a farm in the beautiful Ohiti Valley in Hawke’s Bay. The family wanted to make honest wines – approachable and deliciously enjoyable. Wines that celebrated real life.
Today we gather our grapes from carefully selected vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, Marlborough and Australia – but our distinctive symbol is a constant reminder of where we came from and what we’re all about.
David and Mark Mason, with friend and winemaker Tony Bish, began with a simple philosophy to make more wine than they could drink, and share the rest. They had the perfect place to make it happen along the dramatic white cliffs and river land gravels of the Dartmoor Valley in Hawke’s Bay.
These are memorable wines of great texture, reflecting their origins.
