The Antipodean Sommelier
Company Profile

The Antipodean Sommelier is an Independent Importer/Distributor of Award Winning Premium Wines from New Zealand and Australia. We are entirely focused on supplying Independent Wine Merchants and Regional on-Trade throughout the UK. We are owners of two Marlborough vineyards, in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which provide fruit for our company owned wines, Snapper Rock and Ward Valley.

All other wines import are exclusive to us in the UK. Two Rivers, produced by outstanding kiwi winemaker, David Clouston and Awatere River Wines produced by Louis Vavasour make up the rest of our Marlborough Portfiolio. From Central Otago we have amazing wines from Coal Pit and Terra Sancta and from the North Island, we represent the Chardonnays of legendary Tony Bish (Urban Winery - Hawkes Bay).

For those of you who like something a little different, we now import Obsidian Wines from Waiheke Island, focused on making Bordeaux style wines in the warmer climate.

Last but not least, our Australia Portfolio consists of the great value, Growers Touch range and the more recently added Silent Noise from Mclaren Vale. Charlie O'Brien (Silent Noise) is one of Aussies "young guns" and his wines are not to be missed.
