Villa Maria Launches First Organic Wine Range – EarthGarden


After 21 years of growing grapes organically, Villa Maria has announced the launch of ‘EarthGarden’ – its first ever organic wine range.

EarthGarden was created to meet the rising global demand for sustainable produce and is part of the winery’s commitment to converting 100% of its company vineyards to be organically managed by 2030.

“The global organic wine market was forecasted last year by IWSR to grow 43% by 2024, and New Zealand’s $2Bn wine industry is well positioned to capitalise on this trend,” says Matt Deller MW, Villa Maria’s Chief Global Sales & Marketing Officer.

“Villa Maria, as one of New Zealand’s first and largest organic wine producers aims to help lead the charge with EarthGarden, which is already attracting significant interest from several of the world’s largest retailers.” 

Available in-store and online now, the EarthGarden range is 100% organically grown and BioGro certified and includes Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2020, Marlborough Pinot Noir 2019 and Hawke’s Bay Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2019.

Villa Maria Viticulturalist Hannah Ternent says wines made from organically grown grapes have more intense and evocative flavours.

“When you taste the EarthGarden wines, you taste the care put into the soil, the conscious tending of the vines, the careful handling of the fruit produced and the respect for our relationship with the land,” she says.

A delicious range of organic wines that reflect the thriving New Zealand land that gave them life.

EarthGarden embodies our holistic view of sustainability where organic management means healthy soils and vineyard ecosystems, creating healthy vines and wines full of life and flavour, just as nature intended. When you taste the EarthGarden wines, you taste the care put into the soil, the conscious tending of the vines, the careful handling of the fruit produced and the respect for our relationship with the land.

Villa Maria wines are made for the moment and these wines perfectly capture a moment in time, whether it be cool nights, long hot days, or the warm Pacific breeze of the growing season. The essence and purity of the New Zealand landscape has been bottled in the EarthGarden range, and we can’t wait to share these wines with the world.
