Join us for a virtual wine tasting event, featuring guest speaker Wendy Stuckey, Chief Winemaker of Spy Valley Wines in New Zealand. SPY VALLEY WINES, NEW ZEALAND: Owned and operated by the Johnson Family, Spy Valley Wines is one of Marlborough’s few remaining 100% Kiwi family owned wine companies. Located up the road from a US government listening post (the spy base), Spy Valley is known around the world as one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed producers. The Johnson Family established the first of their 380 acres of estate vineyards in 1993. Pioneering what was then a Marlborough sub-region, the Johnsons’ Lower Waihopai development continued, with the fruit being grown and sold to other wine companies. In 2000, the first vintage under the Spy Valley label was released. With a modern, fully integrated winemaking facility and a passion for excellence, Spy Valley consistently produces globally acclaimed award winning wines. Like most Marlborough wineries, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are Spy Valley specialties but Chief Winemaker and aromatic fanatic Wendy Stuckey and her team, have set a benchmark for New Zealand aromatic whites.
