Here at Thornbury we make wines that are first and foremost enjoyable to drink; wines that go well with food and wines that simply celebrate life.
We created a range of premium and easy drinking wines by simply matching New Zealand’s favourite grape varieties with our iconic wine regions. The image of the dancing piper which adorns our bottles is Dionysus, the Greek God of Wine; he represents the fun and expressive character that epitomises our wine.

Simon Fell
Simon has been crafting Thornbury wines since 2006 and is a pretty talented guy. Intrepid by nature, with a passion for wine, Simon’s career has taken him around the world. Having worked vintages in Central Otago, Oregon, Bordeaux and Western Australia, Simon returned to the North Island to add a Wine Science Diploma to his Bachelor of Science. From here Simon took up a position at Esk Valley Estate before heading off internationally, working in the Gers region of France and onto Chile and the Napa Valley, California, where he was the winemaker for boutique winery DiLoreto Cellars. Simon returned to New Zealand in 2003 to work for Vidal Wines before taking the helm at Thornbury. Simon’s innovation and enthusiasm to produce quality wines with expressive characteristics is what makes Thornbury wines so enjoyable

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
