About Coldwell-Soper Winery

Alistair Soper and Peter Coldwell know there is a fine line between happiness and heartache when it comes to rain in a vineyard. When rain appears early in the spring, the vintage is off to a good start, but it must hold off until the vines can flower and pollinate. Between periods of drought, the rain is a blessed relief that protects the fruit from the sun’s heat. It’s the yin and yang, the crucial balance in nature. Marlborough is known as one of the sunniest places in New Zealand and for having the perfect amount of rain throughout the year, which generally falls at the right time, creating a balance that produces some of the most delicious Sauvignon Blanc in the world.

When making Rain, Al and Pete strive to land in the tropical Sauvignon Blanc spectrum—New Zealand’s specialty. The intense diurnal fluctuations and perfect water balance lead to a wine with a richer body, higher sugar, and lower acid. “Sustainability” isn’t just a word; it’s the New Zealand way of being. The national slogan, “100% Pure,” is reflected in minimal spraying, responsible use of chemicals, and strict water regulations.

Al and Pete met in 2006 when Al gave Pete a job at Highfield TerraVin in Marlborough. Pete eventually left to run another winery, but in 2018 they had the chance to take over the Rain brand together. They now make the wine just as they want to; they source the grapes from their local grower friends in four main sites, and Al makes the key picking decisions based on the optimum maturity of the grapes. Al and Pete consider themselves friends before business partners, and their daughters have been close since birth. “We don’t know if that makes a difference in the wine, but we like to think so.”
