Decibel Wines, Welcome to the Winestock Family

A new generation of wines. Daniel Brennan, inner city Philadelphia born and bred, fell for New Zealand wines almost a decade prior to his moving to New Zealand to become a wine producer. Daniel’s vision is to create natural wines using classic practices and minimal intervention with a community based attitude. Daniel’s first wine was a Malbec 2009 vintage. Now Daniel is producing a variety of wines under the Decibel brand, mostly from the Hawke’s Bay grown fruit.

Why did we decide to add Decibel to our Winestock portfolio?

It was an easy decision, we simply all loved the wines, Daniel and his concept. Decibel adds an exciting range of interesting styles and varietals all grown sustainably in Hawkes Bay and Martinborough. Following our ethos of only adding family owned wines, we all agreed that Decibel needs to be part of our Winestock family.

Why is Decibel an exciting brand for our customers?

Decibel's range (well except for the Malbec) are vegan friendly and produced sustainably. Daniel is driving towards dry farming through out the vineyards applying organic techniques. Currently the range includes:

  • Crownthorpe Sauvignon blanc - 100% Sustainably Certified, in stages of transitioning to organic

  • Bridge Pa Viognier - dry farmed, no weed sprays, transitioning towards organic.

  • Crownthorpe Rosé (Pinot Noir) 100% Sustainably Certified, in stages of transitioning to organic.

  • Martinborough Pinot Noir - grown organically with Daniel continuing to be guided by biodynamic principals in his wine making process.

  • Grimblett Gravels Malbec - 100% Sustainably Certified
