Welcome to Maxim Wines Winery e-cellar door
I started my winemaking career back in 2008. I love working as a winemaker, and can’t imagine working at anything else. I get immense satisfaction producing a product off the land and selling it.
Hawke’s Bay is a beautiful area to grow grapes and live. Every growing season is different and exciting, and I have to play the cards that mother nature gives us every vintage. Coming into harvest I often have a game plan of how the wines will be made, but this changes depending on the weather and other influences.
I find you have to adapt and change and let the wine speak of that vintage. It takes time in the industry as a winemaker to understand wine and only impact the wine when required.
The best thing I can do is be authentic and make the best wine possible with passion.
