New Zealand’s wine industry has changed considerably since Nikola Nobilo planted his first vines in 1943. In many ways, Nikola was instrumental in altering wine culture in New Zealand, pushing for changes to liquor laws and introducing a consumption culture more akin to his native Europe. From Huapai to Marlborough, Nikola was able to focus on his craft in a region that was ripe for growth. The Nobilo legacy continues today, as winemaker David Edmonds uses his passion to produce distinctive wines. Nobilo’s vineyards stretch throughout New Zealand, which gives the winery the opportunity to grow grapes in the most favourable conditions. The international acclaim for Nobilo shows no signs of wavering, and neither does Nobilo’s commitment to high quality.
