Villa Maria was founded by George Fistonich in 1961 by leasing 5 acres of land in Mangere, Auckland, and planting grapes. George produced his first Villa Maria vintage in 1962. Nearly 60 years later, Villa Maria is a reputable global brand and is currently New Zealand’s most awarded winery.
Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand and has over 2,000 sunshine hours per year and receives around 1240 mm of rain per year. Villa Maria’s “Vineyard Park” in Mangere has rich complex volcanic soils that are planted with Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Verdelho.
An iconic New Zealand brand, Villa Maria continues to produce award-winning wines from their Auckland vineyards, in addition to Marlborough, Hawke’s Bay, and Gisborne. Give a bottle or two of Villa Maria wines a go and consider comparing their different regions side by side!
