Loveblock

Perched high on the hills, Loveblock is far removed from the agricultural bustle of the Awatere Valley below. Renowned vintners Kim and Erica Crawford believed they could make wines of extraordinary character and flavors here, and the couple follows a deeply held belief in ethical farming, enabling the wine to show its true and naked terroir.

The Crawfords’ labor of love bears some of the finest wines the iconic Marlborough and Central Otago appellations have to offer – all while employing biodynamic standards, organic farming, and sustainable winegrowing.
