Through enjoying our wines we are sharing our philosophy with you, as our wines are an extension of our personal principles and beliefs.

We see the beauty that manifests itself spontaneously through diversity and simplicity. We think the key to life is to find balance. This point of equilibrium being what we all strive for subconsciously. In horticulture this can be achieved through incorporating bio-diversity and natural farming principles creating a harmonious existence of life.

We also believe in supporting New Zealand made products and New Zealanders’ first right of purchase. It appears too often that supporting the world open market is to the detriment of NZ businesses, NZ people and underdeveloped countries. Our products delivered to you are produced from NZ made ingredients, free from animal by-products and offered to New Zealanders first.

We hope to bring happiness and balance to everyone that savours our wines. We are sharing them with you in the hope you will enjoy them, share them with friends, family, loved ones and people less fortunate than yourself. Bringing happiness and good times to peoples lives while enjoying Wrights’ Wines.

Red, White & Drunk All Over

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Rex Pickett, Sideways

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  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
