ASH RIDGE

Bridge Pa, Hawke's Bay 

Chris and Sonya Wilcock and their young family returned to New Zealand with a dream of producing world class but affordable wines from the Hawkes Bay.  Buying bare land on the Heretaunga plains in 2000, the Wilcock family bought into a dream that these unique soils could make some of the worlds best varietal wines.  After many years planning, developing, planting and nurturing, they are proud today to have the maturing Cardoness Vineyard, producing premium Hawkes Bay Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.  

In January 2014, a brand new Winery was opened on the home site.  The 100 tonne winery is designed to offer all modern winemaking facilities in a Boutique size, allowing the team to be  truely hands on in their winemaking.  This small winemaking team can now nurture the process from vineyard to bottle.
