WINEMAKER

Bryce Edmonds

As the talent and creative force behind the ZARIA brand, Bryce Edmonds brings nearly two decades of experience and a unique expertise to his dual role as founder and winemaker.

His natural and intuitive approach to winemaking marries the creative with the analytical and follows from an education in viticulture and oenology, as well as seasons upon seasons honing his craft by working vintages in New Zealand (at storied wineries such as Te Awa and Sacred Hill), Napa Valley, Bordeaux, and Austria.

Bryce’s winemaking philosophy revolves around cultivating an enjoyable drinking experience — creating wines that he and his wife love and sharing them with the wider public. He takes a hands-off approach to his craft, intervening only as much as the grapes require to transform into delicious wine and, in a nod to ancient winemaking techniques, allowing nature to do the rest.
