From here you can almost see the end of the planet...

I am Erica, one half of a duo dedicated to Loveblock.

Back in 2004, this was a wild piece of land, untamed and hidden from the world. We, Kim and I, have both been working in the wine industry for most of our lives and wondered what we could do with this wildness: how would the unique terroir translate to flavours in wine? Can we make wine that is elegant, restrained and complex? Wine that speaks of its place and a season.

Here in New Zealand land is precious; the economy largely depends on agriculture. As grape growers and wine farmers, we are custodians of this land. We must take care of it, restore soil balance and fertility without commercial fertilisers and chemical protection. We have learnt that the rhythm of the land is immoveable, that we need to submit to it and respect it to get the best from it.

We want to make the best wine we can, wine that speaks with the voice of naked terroir. To do this I hired the best winemaker I know. Let me show you around Loveblock and introduce you to our people
