Helen Morrison

Having worked in the industry for 20 years including work on both the Sauvignon Blanc Celebration in 2019 and Organic Winegrowers, Helen brings a wealth of experience to Pinot team. During her previous 9 years at Villa Maria, she was responsible for creating award-winning wines that achieved global recognition. As Chief Winemaker for Booster Wine Group, she is leading the winemaking team and craft exceptional Pinot Noir wines that showcase brands across multiple regions of New Zealand, including BannockBrae from Central Otago, Awatere River in Marlborough and Sileni in Hawkes Bay. Whenever Helen can sneak away from work, she can be found somewhere in the mountains, either hiking with her dog Dita, or ski-touring to remote alpine areas to find fresh untracked powder.
