Jed Penkman

Client Winemaker

Jed joined the New Zealand Wineries Limited team in 2014.

His first job was at Canterbury House in North Canterbury as a cellar hand in 2002.

Hailing from South Canterbury’s Orari, Jed’s previous job before NZW was in Central Otago, based at South Island Vintners in Cromwell.

He enjoys the client winemaking culture, where every day brings about new methods and ideas, depending on individual client requirements.

Jed enjoys trying different wines from all over the world and the subtle nuances they offer, with good company because “good company makes good wine better,” he said.
