| The Winemaker's Wife
“The Winemaker’s Wife is produced in honour of the woman behind the wine. She is a constant source of inspiration, diversion and support. This wine celebrates partnership and is a tribute to all that can be achieved by two people working together.” – Simon McGeorge | Winemaker
Olive Hill is The Winemaker’s Wife; literally and figuratively. Her namesake wines are made for her, by her winemaker husband, Simon McGeorge.
Simon & Olive established The Winemaker’s Wife label in October 2015. It is the second label for the McGEORGE wine co. They launched the brand with a Waipara Riesling & Banks Peninsula Pinot Gris. They were overjoyed when both wines won GOLD at the 2016 Canterbury Wine Awards, and the Pinot Gris won the ‘Matching Canterbury Wine with Food’ TROPHY.
In their second vintage they added a Rosé which won SILVER at the 2017 Canterbury Wine Awards.
Now they have introduced a Waipara Pinot Noir and a delicious Sticky Riesling to their range.
The Winemaker’s Wife wines are available for purchase on-line through this website, or you may choose to enjoy the wines at the next festival or event. Please see the events page for the latest details.
