Fromm has always loved Pinot Noir and showed both faith and foresight that it could thrive in Marlborough, planting Pinot vines in 1992. Fromm’s first attempt at the variety validated this belief and consequently helped put both Fromm and Marlborough on the international Pinot Noir map. From here the region’s Pinot industry bloomed and is now easily New Zealand’s largest Pinot Noir producing area. Fromm though has remained staunchly boutique choosing to produce no more than 7,000 cases a year in striving for quality without compromise. With a quality without compromise attitude Fromm also makes fine examples of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Syrah and Rosé. All the wines are certified organic through BioGro. With a strong belief that fine wines are made in the vineyard Fromm is very hands on in its viticulture. The densely planted vineyards are organically farmed, low cropped, hand-picked and frugally irrigated (in some cases not at all). In the winery it’s a hands off policy with minimal intervention, choosing not to start with a preconceived idea but instead letting the individual sites express themselves as well as consciously giving the vintage a voice. First and foremost the wine must have drinkability and give pleasure!
