Villa Maria launches premium organic wine range EarthGarden.
After 21 years of growing grapes organically, Villa Maria, has launched its first organic wine range; EarthGarden. Crafted to meet the rising global demand for sustainable produce, EarthGarden is part of Villa Maria’s commitment to converting 100% of its company vineyards to be organically managed by 2030.
EarthGarden is the culmination of a two-decade long journey of discovery in some of New Zealand’s best wine regions.
100% BioGro organic certified, the range includes a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc 2020 available exclusively at Tesco, alongside a refreshingly dry Rosé 2020, a moreish Pinot Noir 2019 and brooding Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 offered at selected independent retailers.
Villa Maria Head of Marketing and Communications Sarah Szegota said, “Villa Maria wines are made for the moment and these wines perfectly capture a moment in time, whether it be cool nights, long hot days, or the warm Pacific breeze of the growing season. The essence and purity of the New Zealand landscape has been bottled in the EarthGarden range, and we can’t wait to share these wines with the world.”
Thrilled with the launch of EarthGarden, Villa Maria Viticulturalist Hannah Ternent said, “Organic farming accentuates flavour in other natural produce such as fruits and vegetables, and it’s the same for wine too. Wines made from organically grown grapes have more intense and evocative flavours. When you taste the EarthGarden wines, you taste the care put into the soil, the conscious tending of the vines, the careful handling of the fruit produced and the respect for our relationship with the land.”
“Each year we plant wildflower seeds in the vineyards, which create beautiful, vibrant rows full of flowers, bees and insects that encourage a flourishing ecosystem, and we are highly motivated to further enhance the health of our soils and environment so we can continue to reap the rewards of beautiful fruit for years to come. EarthGarden perfectly encapsulates these principles and what we are striving to achieve.”
Available across the UK now, EarthGarden is a sustainable showcase of the best of Kiwi winemaking. With Villa Maria’s flair for award-winning wines, when you choose EarthGarden you know you are selecting world-class wines crafted by one of New Zealand’s most loved and admired brands.
Villa Maria’s strong sustainability credentials and continued commitment to organic winegrowing gives consumers a range of wines from a trusted brand that reflects their lifestyle and ethical consumption choices.
