Coopers Creek | Auckland
Andrew and Cynthia Hendry’s love of fine wine and food led them into winemaking and consequently they bought the land near Auckland on which Coopers Creek was established in 1980, with the aim of producing the very highest quality wines. The Coopers Creek label first appeared in 1982, since when they have continued to develop their vineyards, extend the range, and advance their reputation as one of the best performing and most eclectic medium-sized wineries in New Zealand.
Coopers Creek continues to innovate, particularly with new wine styles, introducing and pioneering promising new grape varieties that are ideal for cool climate regions. Viognier, Albariño, Arneis, Marsanne and Montepulciano are new varieties for New Zealand, but heading for stardom. Coopers Creek is satisfying a growing demand for these stylish varieties in addition to its longstanding pedigree with Pinot Noir, Syrah, Bordeaux reds alongside the iconic Hawkes Bay Swamp Reserve Chardonnay.
Crafting wines that are attractive, inspiring and stylish is Coopers Creek’s driving force. Pioneering and innovating has been its goal for the last forty years and that’s unlikely to change any time soon!
