Mt Beautiful Wines from New Zealand


This episode of Big Blend Radio’s Eat, Drink & Be Merry show features Robert Watkins and Linda Kissam “Food, Wine & Shopping Diva.” Joining the team in late 2010, Robert is CEO of Mt. Beautiful Winery, Mt. Beautiful USA, and Teece Family Vineyards and farming operation.

When a vineyard is in sync with its environment, wines of great complexity and appeal are possible.  Mt. Beautiful wines from New Zealand are a product of just that scenario.

Mt Beautiful Winery has a compelling back story. In short, internationally acknowledged scholar David Teece, with a love of his heritage applied the lessons he learned throughout his life of farming, academics and personal achievement to build a winery destined to serve up some of New Zealand’s most elegant …and affordable…wines. It is said that David, “… has poured every bit of his heart, soul and business savvy into Mt. Beautiful, attracting the best people, relying on only proven sustainable practices and crafting sublime New Zealand wines.”

Robert splits his time between New Zealand and San Francisco with worldwide responsibility for all facets of Teece Family Vineyards and Mt. Beautiful brands. His philosophy “If you run out of problems to solve it gets boring, and with David Teece, that will never happen.”
