Quarisa Wines

The Quarisa wines of John and Josephine Quarisa have made great inroads in the New Zealand market over the past few years. The success of the wines is due to the expertise and experience of John Quarisa, who has had a distinguished career as a winemaker with Nugen Estate, Casella and McWilliams, and as a wine show judge for over two decades. A number of ranges of wines are produced from the flavoursome and approachable ‘Johnny Q’ wines to the elegant, regional wines in the ‘Treasures’ tier. www.quarisa.com.au The wines are distributed in New Zealand by Procure Liquor. www.procureliquor.co.nz Here, I review a strong selection of Quarisa wines.
