Vintage Stories - Episode 36 - Ollie Powrie

Ollie Powrie became Company Viticulturist for one of the world's premiere wineries, Villa Maria, after returning to Hawkes Bay in 2006.  His international work, travels and experience through France and Vietnam particularly, inspired him to return to New Zealand and be apart of an exciting time in the industry.  Ollie's passion for growing fine wine grapes has been met with open arms with Villa Maria where they specialise in single vineyard expressions of top quality NZ wine.  His work and experience in the Gimblett Gravels Wine Growing Districtâ„¢ has been especially gratifying in watching one of the world's most unique appellations become one of the world's most highly regarded.
