Chris Scott

Winemaker

Chris Scott, Regional Winemaker for Church Road Winery.

Some would say it’s a very happy coincidence being a winemaker with a special interest in tasting the world’s best wines. But this is what drives Chris Scott in his quest to one day have his name attached to a New Zealand wine label that establishes a new global benchmark. Drawing on his international tasting experiences, he focuses on building texture and structure, because he believes flavour and aroma alone are not enough in creating world beating wines. 

Chris was awarded the title of 2013 New Zealand Winemaker of the Year by Winestate Magazine. The Winestate New Zealand Winemaker of the Year award is given to the individual who achieves the highest score from the top 10 different wines judged throughout the year.
