New Zealand has a special kind of magic. Untamed landscapes, fertile 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 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 innovative 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.
3sixty2 takes a modern approach to traditional winemaking. While harnessing simplicity and embracing a low intervention approach, 3sixty2 elevates the end of day relaxation, with the intention to subtly disrupt & delight curious palates.
3sixty2 is more than thoughtful grapegrowing and conscious winemaking, 3sixty2 represents the reconnection to one's quiet (or social) routine. Our considered portfolio of wines elicit a sense of trust that it is okay to slow down - take some time - and connect with the abundant array of nature's finest fragrances and flavours.
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 curious foodies. 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.
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.
3sixty2. Honour your nature. Strive for more.

Pinot Noir, Silver Linings 2019
Tasted over five days this wine has an impressive consistency, purity and ageing potential. From day one through five the core of fruit remained the focus with aromas and flavours of dark red berries, layers of dark cherry and plum, some raspberry and rose flavours. Layers of wood spice and fine tannins with medium+ acidity hold the all the attributes together leading to a balanced, lengthy and even finish. Well made, a wine for today and the cellar. Best drinking from 2021 through 2030. 94 Points, Excellent.

Sauvignon Blanc, Sur Lie 2017
Complex, ripe and pure fruit scented bouquet. Aromas of fresh white peach and preserved lemon, fresh tropical fruits of pineapple and green mango then apple and fresh herbs.
On the palate - textured, fruity, varietal and spicy. Flavours reflect the nose with a spicy acid tang, wet stone mineralogy and lengthy salivating and lightly salty finish. Well made and ready to drink upon purchase and through to 2023.
