Forrest Estate
Doctors John and Brigid Forrest are Forrest, a small, very much 'hands-on" producer of premium quality white wine from their home vineyards in Marlborough. Whilst in partnership they produce the Cornerstone Bordeaux red from their vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels Region of Hawke's Bay and premium Pinot Noir from their vineyards in Bannockburn and the Waitaki Valley, Otago.

Leaving behind careers in molecular biology and medicine, John and Brigid returned to Marlborough in 1988 to establish their first vineyard at Renwick - at the heart of the stony Wairau River Valley.

Vintage 1990 saw the first Forrest wine and immediate success with a trophy at the national wine awards - success that has been repeated many times both nationally and internationally over the subsequent vintages.
Bob Campbell MW
"Distinctive riesling with a relatively low (9% vol.) alcohol that has earned many accolades since first release a few years ago. It’s delicate and deliciously tangy with a very pleasing sweet-and-sour tension and ethereal texture. Flavours are a mix of riper tree fruit, apricot, apple and citrus, lime and grapefruit."
