Description: Hayden Penny is the winemaker for organic production, William Murdoch Wines set back in the Gimblett Gravels of Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Hayden’s career started in New Zealand but has brought him through California, Australia, South America, Spain and a unique experience in Bulgaria.
I see Hayden on a fairly regular basis in the Gimblett Gravels. But it wasn’t until we sat down for this chat I realised the extent of his experience and travel. He brings a unique story to the table and his work at William Murdoch Wines is on the verge of international acclaim.
