3 family owned vineyards and award-winning winemakersSOHOWINECO was founded in 2009 by Rachael Carter. Rachael’s family have been involved in the NZ wine industry for over 40 years.

SOHO utilise family owned vineyards from 3 of the best NZ wine regions & combine these with 3 award-winning winemakers who are specialists in their realm. Marlborough winemaker Dave Clouston, Central Otago winemaker Grant Taylor & Waiheke Island winemaker James Rowan, individually give each wine its own distinctive premium style & personality.

Their 5 star, gold medal winning wines are encapsulated in Tom Ford inspired packaging, NZ’s sexy premium wine – reflective of our life & the amazing people we share it with.

Rachael Carter“I wanted to create a wine company that was sexy, fun, quality focused & reflected the social network associated with wine – a name that embodies this is SOHO. It is often the situation & the company in which you are drinking the wine that makes it more special & this ‘environment’ is the essence of the brand SOHO”.

Good deep red. Distinctly dark aromas of cassis, black and sour cherry, licorice, violet, sandalwood and pungent spices; became a bit liqueur-like with extended aeration. Densely packed, concentrated and pliant, offering serious weight and palate presence, as well as excellent definition, to its flavors of red and dark berries, violet and spicy oak. Finishes with a firm spine of dusty tannins that should support aging.
