About Volcanic Hills
Volcanic Hills business partners Brent Park and Sean Beer have over 20 years' wine-making experience between them and have worked in New Zealand, Australia, the United States of America, France and South Africa. The pair also worked on one of New Zealand's most prominent wine brands, but eventually decided to develop their own iconic range.
The two have been looking for a home for their wine brand since launching their label in 2009, finding that home at Skyline Rotorua with their Tasting Room and Winery now open.
The Volcanic Hills range includes Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Rose, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The grapes are sourced from New Zealand's premium wine-growing regions of Marlborough, Central Otago and Hawke's Bay, crafted by a couple of talented and vastly experienced winemakers.
