Ash Ridge

  • About

    Established in 2005 on the free draining gravel based soils of the Bridge Pa Triangle by expat Englishman Chris Wilcock, Ash Ridge is rapidly making a name for itself as the new kids on the block in the Hawke's Bay. By identifying a unique vineyard site, establishing a world class vineyard and then developing from scratch an award winning winery, this truly has been a labour of love from the ground up, which is reflected in each bottle of wine. Young winemaker Lauren Swift (27), currently New Zealand’s Young Winemaker of the Year, is crafting wines of great elegance and power for one so young. Joining the winery directly from University, she went on to craft the 2013 Ash Ridge Trophy winning Merlot only three months from graduation. Ash Ridge has also already won Hawke’s Bay Winery of the Year in 2012 and 2014. By concentrating on Chardonnay, Syrah and Merlot, Hawke’s Bay’s key varietals, this young winery is turning some heads, already being added to the Wine Enthusiasts list of New Zealand Syrah’s to watch.
