Meet the Winemaker
Trudy Sheilds
Waimea Estates, New Zealand

It was over a bottle of wine that Trudy fell in love with the idea of winemaking and set in motion an exciting career.
After studying at Lincoln University and working in vintages overseas, in March 2004 Trudy arrived at Waimea in time for harvest.  Nine years on, Trudy has been Head Winemaker and running Waimea's core winery team since 2010.  The finesse with which Trudy finishes her wines and her exceptional palate has seen Waimea continue to roll in the accolades thick and fast.
