Our Story


Wild Earth’s Quintin Quider – founder & director

It was the sea and not the land that originally held Wild Earths owner Quintin Quider’s heart. A commercial diver, he fell in love with New Zealand’s rugged landscape and moved with his partner and young family to Stewart Island, wishing to escape the rat-race that was life in his Southern California birthplace. The lure of wine growing soon followed as he developed a passion for New Zealand Pinot Noir. Never one to turn his back on a challenge, when the opportunity to purchase a vineyard in the worlds most Southern wine growing region presented itself, Quintin seized it. The Wild Earth journey had begun.
