From medicine to winemaking - the Forrest Wines story

From medicine to winemaking - the Forrest Wines story

Drs John and Brigid Forrest are behind Forrest, a boutique wine label run largely from their home vineyards in Marlborough. Leaving behind careers in molecular biology and medicine, the couple returned to Marlborough in 1988 to establish their first vineyard. Among their products is the Doctor's wine range, with lower alcohol content and varietals that are either twists on classics or brand new, such as sparkling Syrah.

Auckland agency BRR has snagged a place in graphic design enterprise Under Consideration’s Best Identities of 2012 list, with its work for the New Zealand Antarctic Research Institute coming in ninth out of 12 brands.
