Fromm


Introduction

Founded by Georg and Ruth Fromm, a fourth generation Swiss winemaker, the name Fromm signifies the journey made from the old world to the new in the 1980s. When Georg teamed up with fellow winemaker Hätsch Kalberer (ther first winemaker to make Pinot Noir in NZ) , they decided to act upon their shared love and understanding of European and New Zealand wine and create something of their own. After much talking, planning and planting, Fromm Winery was launched in 1992. Since then Fromm has built an international reputation by producing an array of outstanding wines that reflect both European style and Kiwi ingenuity. Based in Marlborough, they produce world-beating Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Syrah and Pinot. The estate has been transformed into a fully organic site whilst using biodynamic practices in parallel. Today, the passion for the wine continues under the careful eye of old family friend and new owner, Pol Lenzinger and Swiss partner George Walliser. The future of Fromm lies in caring for the health of the vineyards, the environment and the people who work with them to produce these stunning wines.
