Our philosophy

Sustainable Wine New Zealand

New Zealand has a special kind of magic.

Untamed landscapes, rugged soils, millions of passionate people – it’s a great place to live, and a great place to make wine. It’s an honour to call it our home. 

Which is why, we’ve decided to do everything we can to protect it. 

At 3sixty2, we’re pretty lucky. We have a founder, Alice. She’s young and brave and great at making wine. She cares deeply about our land and the marks we leave behind. She’s an adventurer, a pioneer, and a Kiwi who gives a damn. She is the heart and soul inside every bottle. 

Like many good Kiwis, Alice began with an idea. She’d make wine, she thought, but she’d do it her way – with one eye on the vines, and the other always looking to the land and the sea and the sky. She’d stand tall as an eco-warrior, showing the world how it could, and should, be done. She’d put community first and champion the power of true connections. And, she’d work hard. Really hard. 

At 3sixty2, we make beautiful wine. But that’s not the only reason we’re here. We’re here to honour our legacy, nurture our future and offer our guardianship for Aotearoa. We’re here for the wine-drinkers, the wine-makers and the nature-lovers. We’re here because things need to change.

Our world needs protecting. And it’s on us – the young ones, the brave ones, the let’s-try-something-new ones – to make sure that happens. Alice Rule

We’d like you to come along with us. To drink with us as we pioneer a different way of thinking, a better way of being, and a whole new way of producing New Zealand wine.
