LOVE BLOCK WINERY

Loveblock was forged from a love affair with a view and a challenge. Loveblock is perched on top of the hill overlooking Marlborough's Awetere Valley, far removed from the agricultural bustle below. You can almost see the end of the planet; the peace lifts you above your troubles. Loveblock is charged with creating the best wine to express this special place.

“Loveblock,” says Erica, “is a love story.”
Loveblock is founded by Erica, and her husband, Kim, renowned veterans of the New Zealand wine industry. Erica, a graduate from the University of Cape Town, started her career as an aspirational medical scientist, progressing into the pharmaceutical industry. Erica made New Zealand her home after marrying her husband. Kim trained at New Zealand’s Massey University and specialized in Oenology at South Australia’s Roseworthy College. Kim returned to his native New Zealand following stints at Arrowfield in Hunter Valley, Stags Leap Winery in Napa Valley and Backsberg Estate in South Africa. Erica and Kim began making wine under their own label in 1996 and later sold that business. However, both were lured back by an untamed parcel of land on a hillside in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley and the prospect of making wines that showed “true and naked terroir.”

“We wondered what we could do with this wildness: How would the unique terroir translate to flavors in wine?” Erica says. “Can we make wine that is elegant, restrained and complex? Wine that speaks of its place and a season?”
To make the wines, Erica jokes that she “hired the best winemaker I know – my husband."
That would be Kim, a past “New Zealand Winemaker of the Year” and colorful industry personality. “I am Erica’s husband,” says Kim, “and the winemaker here at Loveblock. Making wine is really the only thing I have ever done. I’ve been doing it for almost 30 years now.”

The Loveblock farm in Awatere Valley is certified organic by BioGro New Zealand, the country’s leading organic certifier. The Central Otago property, purchased in 2008 and dedicated solely to Pinot Noir, is SWNZ (Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand) accredited.
