New Zealand wines for restaurants, hotels and trade

Fincher & Co

A reflection of single site viticulture in Marlborough. Created by Master of Wine, Liam Steevenson and Winemaker Ben Glover. The name FINCHER is a family name, and the middle name of all of Liam's children.

From the beginning, this brand has been built around the importance of finding exceptional vineyards that highlight the intrinsic qualities and diverse nature of Sauvignon Blanc. Patience in the vineyard is echoed inside the cellar, resulting in wines that reflect place rather than pure fruit character.

FINCHER & CO. is an artisanal reflection of site. It showcases the brilliance of New Zealand winemaking and ensures that the essence of place and people is reflected in the finished wine.

FINCHER&CO packaging has been designed by internationally acclaimed Creative Director Martin McCully of MUST DESIGN to be as at home on the shop shelf as it is the restaurant table. The branding tells a story of quality and uniqueness that the wine in the bottle reflects, but is accessible to a global audience. Using premium paper and print finishes, such as raised white on white gloss text, the labels give a beautifully tactile experience in the hand and a distinctive, contemporary look on the shelf.
