Welcome to Eva Pemper as our newest ‘Partner in Wine’
Eva Pemper is a Croatian winemaker, now living in NZ. She arrived in New Zealand in 2012 following her dream to travel, meet people and make wine around the world. Eva of course absolutely fell in love with New Zealand and New Zealand wines, people and places.
Eva holds a master’s degree in winemaking from Agriculture University in Zagreb, Croatia and a Graduate Diploma in Oenology from EIT, Hawke’s Bay.
She comes from a winemaking family, so didn’t have to go far for her inspiration to be a part of something as wonderful as the world of wine.
Eva worked for the Marris Family and the Ned for 6 years. Following that she spent a year and a half at Marlborough Vintners as a Client Winemaker making wine for a lot of different smaller producers building on her skills and knowledge of different winemaking styles.
She left MVL in May 2019 to follow her dream of continuing her family tradition of making great wines. Eva started EP Wines Ltd with her business partner who owns a vineyard in Marlborough on the beautiful north-facing Wither Hills.
The “Eva Pemper” brand is a product of many wonderful things that came together and became one.
One of the fundamental inspirations of “Eva Pemper” wine is the significant influence of Croatian heritage in New Zealand’s wine industry. This history saw families coming here from Croatia over a hundred years ago with just their suitcases, following their dream.
Today this dream has resulted in some of New Zealand’s highest profile wine industry people and brands that are well-known and respected here and around the world.
The “Eva Pemper” brand is all about premium quality wines targeting restaurants, wine shops, wine bars and online wine sales. Eva has two wines in her portfolio at the moment – her very well received 2019 Eva Pemper Sauvignon Blanc and a recently released 2020 Eva Pemper Rosé (Pinot Noir / Pinot Gris)
The Little Cupid holding a glass of wine is a legacy from her family’s wine label and represents the love and passion for life that we all can enjoy in a wonderful glass of wine.
