Boutique Vineyard, Renwick, Marlborough
Gibson Bridge is a boutique family owned vineyard located in Renwick, the heart of New Zealand's premium white grape growing region - Marlborough. Howard and Julie Simmonds have established, and tend their vineyard on the bank of the fast flowing alpine fed Gibson Creek. Howard planted the block with Pinot Gris as a mainstay but also with tiny quantities of Syrah, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Gewürtztraminer. Gibson Bridge produce small quantities of premium wine with Howard the Viticulturist and David Tyney the Winemaker.
