The Villa Maria story is one of absolute passion. 100% New Zealand and family owned, Villa Maria Estate was founded by George Fistonich in 1961 and, through his dedication to quality, Villa Maria Estate has claimed the title of New Zealand's Most Awarded Wines for over thirty years. Villa Maria Estate makes wines as nature intended, clean, fresh, intensely varietal and elegant.
George Fistonich, Owner and Managing Director "Uppermost in my mind as we grow is that we should maintain the principles with which we started 50 years ago: the pursuit of quality, innovation and passion for a particular style that is New Zealand. Above all, we want to make wines that everyone can enjoy, everywhere."
