Steve Bird Winery & Vineyards

Steve Bird Winery & VineyardsSteve Bird is one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed winemakers.  His wines have won numerous gold medals and other awards, both in New Zealand and abroad.  Indeed Steve is the maker of Wine Spectator magazine’s highest-scoring Sauvignon Blanc ever – at 93 points.  His wines have also featured on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list.

Steve’s career in wine began when he was a schoolboy working for a small, family wine company, based in picturesque Coromandel Peninsula.

His love of the work and passion for wine led him to study wine-making at the highly regarded Roseworthy Agricultural College in South Australia.

On completion of his degree in Wine Science, Steve returned to the New Zealand wine industry, working initially with the legendary John Hancock at Morton Estate and then starting Thornbury Vineyards. By the time Steve and his business partners launched Thornbury Vineyards his  wine-making skills were abundantly clear and he was producing internationally acclaimed wines.

When Villa Maria Estate acquired Thornbury Wines in 2004, Steve and Caroline were able to pursue their dream of their own family winery, Steve Bird Winery and Vineyards.

This kite represents the hallmarks of the Manu brand; craftsmanship, elegance and the pure nature of New Zealand.

The Manu brand has created the opportunity to merge elements of the Bird family’s indigenous heritage with the distinctive style and quality of wine from New Zealand’s most celebrated wine regions.
