Crafting exceptional Hawke’s Bay wines
Naturally guided wines of depth, richness, complexity and texture.
Julianne Brodgen’s passion for wine has seen a journey of over 20 years in the industry both locally and abroad in Western Australia and California, with small boutique wineries. The family environment, physical, dirty, hard labour, long hours, great food and eclectic music have all influenced her approach to winemaking as being hands-on, honest and expressive. It was this colourful journey that helped bring Collaboration Wines to fruition in 2010. A portfolio of finely crafted, small batch wines of depth, complexity and texture is the result of a collaboration between herself as owner/winemaker and a collection of passionate growers from specially selected vineyard sites in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Having winemaker and winegrower aligned allows for the potential of each site, each varietal and the Hawke’s Bay climate to be realised.
