Simon Nunns joined Coopers Creek in 1997 and took over the reins as winemaker with the 1998 vintage. This was one of the best vintages ever seen at Coopers Creek and with a host of Gold's and other award winning wines from that vintage onwards, Simon has continued to enhance the prestige of the Coopers Creek brand.
Today, almost forty years on, Coopers Creek is still a family owned, New Zealand winery that remains in close touch with its origins and original aims. The company employs twenty five full time employees and is exporting wine to over twenty countries worldwide. The winery and vineyard site at Huapai has matured well over the years with the landscaping of the gardens, which now position it as one of the most picturesque settings in the region (high on the list of must-see wineries). Host to popular events such as afternoon jazz on summer Sundays. It is a great place to visit and taste fine wine now and in the future.
