West Brook Win­ery

New Zealand Classic Car - - Summer Wine Guide -

A25-minute drive West of Auck­land will re­veal a val­ley where the land­scape, soil, sun, and rain com­bine mag­i­cally to pro­duce ex­cep­tional con­di­tions, per­fect for grow­ing grapes. Wine mak­ers from around the world call the com­plete nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment in which wine is pro­duced ‘ter­roir’, al­though West Brook Win­ery pri­vately has a dif­fer­ent name for it — ‘Wai-mag­i­cal’. They also share a love for clas­sic cars, many of which have vis­ited West Brook Win­ery over the years to en­joy the touch of their clas­sics — wine, that is — for the fam­ily has been mak­ing wine since 1935, and has crafted many a clas­sic over that time.

The West Brook team is a close and happy one, pas­sion­ate about mak­ing great wine, and they firmly be­lieve their har­mony and friend­ship gen­uinely con­trib­ute to the flavour and suc­cess­ful out­come of the wine.

West Brook’s vine­yard is nes­tled in a unique mi­cro­cli­mate grow­ing Chardon­nay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Mal­bec. The drive out is scenic and re­lax­ing and, on ar­rival, they would like to give you a mem­o­rable time en­joy­ing their va­ri­etals at the cel­lar door. Take a drive out and taste their pas­sion, as it’s in ev­ery bot­tle they sell.
