The Nobilo story began in 1943, when our namesake, Nikola Nobilo moved from his native Croatia to New Zealand. Combining over 300 years of his families' winemaking tradition, Nikola was an early champion for New Zealand wine. He recognized the pristine landscape was ideal for Sauvignon Blanc with expansive sunlight valleys, rolling hills and mineral rich soils creating a unique fresh and crisp flavor profile. His focus on quality and a move toward varietal wines helped guide the industry to its success today. These internationally acclaimed wines consistently receive accolades and praise for our vibrant and distinctive style.
