Eric and Michael Spencer are two Kiwis who love good wine. 'Life’s too short to drink bad wine' is an expression they’ve always championed. Spencer Block Wines was created by Eric and Michael with the vision of sourcing and making wines of the highest quality for their customers.
Both Eric and Michael have a long history in the wine industry. Eric is a former shareholder in Desert Heart wines which is located on Felton Road, in Bannockburn, Central Otago. After selling his Desert Heart shareholding, Eric acquired a vineyard in the celebrated Uco Valley, in Mendoza, Argentina. Michael has many years experience as a wine professional, working in restaurant hospitality and wine sales and distribution.
In 2012, when Eric sold Desert Heart, he put his wine stock in temperature controlled storage, so that it could be released in the future for wine lovers to enjoy.
