The word providore means supplier, and that is just what winemaker and owner Pete Bartle intends to do. This wine company, Providore was created out of passion for Central Otago, it takes resilience and determination to survive and thrive in the beautiful, but harsh environment of this region. Pete recognises all the hard work that the goldminers, farmers and orchardists have put into the region, as growing grapes in Central Otago is no small job either. This wine is to honour all the remarkable people who helped mould Central Otago into the lush and fertile land it is today.
Along with fellow winemaker Jody Pagey, Providore currently produces Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Blanc de Noir and Rosé wine styles. One to try would be their 2019 Providore Pinot Gris which comes from a single vineyard Gibbston. This Pinot Gris is very fruit forward and has aromatics of pear, pineapple and citrus zest, hints of biscotti and butterscotch can also be found in this vintage.
Something new and exciting that Providore has been able to achieve, is the use of a phone app that can bring their wine labels to life! By using the Augmented Reality app, the technology can take you on a tour of the vineyard of where the wine was produced with Pete acting as your tour guide. This will allow you to feel a connection with the Central Otago landscape, whether you are drinking their wine in New Zealand, Japan or on the other side of the world.
