Today, the Ivicevich family are all involved in the wine industry. Today the third and fourth generations of this passionate family are still producing world class wines at West Brook.
In 2004 talented young wine maker James Rowan joined the team and between them, they have continued to produce some fabulous West Brook vintages in recent years.
West Brook’s 8 hectare Waimauku estate, now planted with 5 hectares of premium grape vines, was chosen for a number of very good reasons. The water (wai) here is pure and plentiful, the soil is special, unique to the location, and highly conducive to growing grapes. The vineyard is nestled in a unique microclimate growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Malbec.
