Carrick Wines

Named after the Carrick Range, we make wines that are estate-grown, wild fermented and certified organic.

About the winery
CARRICK’s winery and restaurant was completed in 2002 and features an underground cellar, home to about 500 barrels. The winery contains an assortment of stainless steel red and white fermenters, sized to accommodate the various vineyard parcels. We place importance on having our own winery, sitting alongside our vineyards. The close proximity allows us to make harvesting decisions based on what is best for the wine and allows us to process our grapes in the best possible way, gently and, of course, organically. We feel that the grapes guide the wines, this philosophy is a continuous journey, to allow the wines to express place and season. There is no formula, no set winemaking style, the individuality of the wines is our reward.

History & Geography
From the beginning.. Carrick was founded by Barbara and Steve Green who planted a rabbit infested block of land in Bannockburn, on the shores of the yet to be filled Lake Dunstan in 1994. The Greens' knowledge was academic, but they loved pinot noir and were inspired by the pioneers Alan Brady and Rolf Mills in the early 1990s. The name 'Carrick' is derived from the gold-mining town and the mountain range to which the estate points. The Place.. Located in the world’s southernmost winegrowing region, Central Otago is home to a number of sub-regions. We are located in Bannockburn, a small vineyard area, stretching along the southern side of the Kawarau river. In earlier days it was a centre of gold mining operations and the rich pioneering heritage is still evident today. The Philosophy... WE are guardians of our land and look to continuous improvement of our soils and site, through organic management, developing biodiversity and looking after the people who look after our site. Wine
