THE PRODUCER

Perched high on the hills overlooking Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, Loveblock is far removed from the agricultural bustle in the valley below. From here you can almost see the end of the planet; the peace lifts you above your troubles. Loveblock are charged with creating the best wine they can to express this extraordinary place and its unique aspect. Kim and Erica follow their deeply held belief in low intervention farming which enables the wine to show its true and naked terroir.
