John Hancock

Winemaker

John is one of New Zealand’s charismatic wine personalities and the man behind some of the local industry’s most significant achievements.
As founding winemaker for one of New Zealand’s early wine successes, Morton Estate, John’s chardonnay was judged Best in the World at the 1997 Wine Magazine’s International Wine Challenge. His experiences working vintages at Tain L’Hermitage in the Rhone with the late Gerard Jaboulet were the catalyst for the now iconic Trinity Hill Homage Syrah.
