Back to Wineries




After working years overseas from her base in California’s Napa Valley, Julianne Brogden, Director and Winemaker of Collaboration Wines has returned home to Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand.

Hawke’s Bay’s maritime climate, microclimates, and soil types, provide a rich canvas of vineyard sites to work with. Julianne has selected sites from some of Hawke’s Bay’s finest winegrowing sub-regions that represent the ultimate varietal expression of the wines.

Because of the tiny production of Collaboration wines, all of the vines are tended to by hand (with the help of family and friends) to ensure fruit of the highest quality is produced.

“A portfolio of wines from select Hawke’s Bay vineyard sites that truly reflect our region and my experience and appreciation for the world of wine.” – Julianne (Julz) Brogden

If you haven’t already, try to get a peak at a bottle or two of the Collaboration Wines collection. Not only is the wine inside juicy and delicious, but the wine label art is just stunning. The label artwork is intuitive, a series of rich, abstract artworks reflective of the complexity and depth of the wines by artist Angela Tirrell from Napa Valley.

Collaboration can be found in many of New Zealand’s finest restaurants, luxury lodges and fine wine stores, and for good reason! We are lucky to hold such a fine wine that is made in New Zealand and are thrilled to be able to offer it to you.
