Editors note: Toi Toi wines was established by New Zealanders Kevin Joyce and Andrew Bonner in 2006 to craft great quality wines which reflect New Zealand’s terroir at popular prices. The pair have called on their experience in the industry to create Toi Toi: Andrew has been part of the industry for more than 20 years including as Managing Director of Foster’s Group Pacific; Kevin, a chartered accountant, was acting CEO/Commercial Manager for Tohu Wines before establishing Toi Toi. There was only one Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from the inaugural vintage but since then the Toi Toi range has grown to include; sparkling wine, prosecco, unoaked chardonnay, riesling, pinot gris, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and a late harvest riesling dessert wine. Mostly recently they have added organic wines to their portfolio.
