Lismore Wines NZ Ltd is owned by Graeme & Barbara Thompson who have been involved in the marketing of New Zealand wines internationally for more than 12 years. Based in beautiful Lake Wanaka, Central Otago, they have recently been joined by daughters Lucy Hunt and Kate Thompson. In recognition of their pastoral heritage, Graeme and Barbara Thompson have channelled their passion for the land into transforming New Zealand’s famed southern grape harvest into quality wines, the best New Zealand can offer at competitive prices. Under the guidance of senior wine consultant Alan McCorkindale, who has twice been named New Zealand’s Winemaker of the Year, the Lismore labels each have their own distinctive style. Best-practice processes are utilized in making our wines in order to reduce the carbon footprint and provide accountability and traceability. Paramount importance is placed on the long-term care of the soil and surrounding environment – sustainable winemaking from a clean green land.
