Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2021


Adele & Daniel Le Brun were the pioneers of Methode Traditionelle in Marlborough starting the Le Brun label in 1980 with the first release in 1985. In fact Daniel Le Brun has been called the Grandfather of Méthode Traditionelle in New Zealand. The Estate now operates under the No 1 Family Estate label (The Le Brun brand was sold to Lion in 1996). 

Daniel is involved in every stage of creating the wines and is somewhat of a perfectionist, never wavering in his commitment to creating wine the way he learned from his father in Champagne. 

The structure of Chardonnay, the finesse of Pinot Noir and the softness of Meunier have been brought together for 3 years on lees, in the classic Méthode Traditionelle style. This wine has elegance, complexity and wide appeal. Aromas of autolysis,  peach, baked apple and citrus. A fine mousse, bold acidity and flavours that reflect the nose. Composition: 60% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (NV)
"This is immediately appealing on the nose showing fresh strawberry, stone fruit, apple and yeasty characters, followed by a delightfully expressed palate that is bright and vibrant with fine texture and lively acidity. Beautifully harmonious and soothing, this is charming and delectable. A blend of three classic Champagne grapes: chardonnay (60%), pinot noir (35%), pinot meunier (5%), and matured on lees for 18 months."


94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (NV)
"A classic blend of Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir and Meunier – presents aromas and flavours of white peaches and apples, pears and sweet lemon. A calm yet rounded and gently spicy leesy autolysis with a developing complexity. Dry, weighty, fruity, fleshy and leesy with fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Balanced and poised for more development in your cellar, but totally drinkable today as an aperitif or with cured salmon, charcutérie or cold chicken cuts."

    5 star review  Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

  • 5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.

The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
