Left Field - The People

Richard Painter is the Left Field winemaker.  Richard has worked in a number of different wine regions around New Zealand including Central Otago, Canterbury and Nelson. He has also worked a number of vintages in the USA, in Oregon and Washington, where he fell in love with full-bodied red wines.

Richard’s ever-present shadow, Sam is often to be spotted assisting in vineyards or in his self-appointed pest control role.  He takes his responsibilities very seriously, but sadly after one particularly fine effort to rid the packed restaurant of a nefarious feline infestation, he found himself banished to the outdoors for ever more. 

"The best thing about being the winemaker for Left Field is that I can spread my wings playing around with different regions and varieties"

RICHARD PAINTER, WINEMAKER
