What can you expect to find?

In the past, a Guild represented a collective of some of the finest craftsmen who learnt their craft as apprentices from the Guild’s Master. Our modern-day take, the Volcanic Hills Wine Lovers’ Guild, is where you will find a collective of wine drinkers and tasters who seek a new wine-buying experience that reflects the mystery and style of our craft.

Who is the winemaker?

rotorua winery tours
Have you met this guy? Brent Park. In a traditional Guild he would have been called your Master but you can just call him ‘Your Winemaker’. If you asked him, what’s the one thing you could do to contribute to the ongoing success of a small independent winery like Volcanic Hills, he would say ‘enter The Guild’.

Brent doesn’t need a chain of big box retailers to distribute their brand. He just needs a nod in advance from you – a commitment to a winemaker who stepped away from a corporate winemaking job to have the freedom to explore wine styles of quality and character.

Brent has had the courage to do something differently. He deserves a like-minded Guild of Wine Lovers to transform the way Volcanic Hills wine is experienced – and people passionate about wine deserve more too.

How is it different?

It’s not your typical retail experience. It’s a community of wine drinkers and tasters who want to learn the craft, evaluate our wine and enjoy the rewards of the job including exclusive deals and insider prices.

Provides a chance to vote with your glass to disrupt the status quo and change the way you and other like-minded people experience wine forever.

If you’ve ever dreamt of being connected to a  small independent winery here is your opportunity to experiment alongside a unique community of insiders.


You learn the craft when we fuse together wine and education and fun.  As a wine lover, imagine what you will experience when you’re given the challenge to take your knowledge of wine to the next level?
