The world’s most influential women in wine

🇳🇿 New Zealand: Natalie Christensen

Classically trained double bass player Natalie Christensen is senior winemaker at Yealands Estate in Marlborough. With a first class psychology degree, a bachelor of music, and a diploma in oenology, she cut her winemaking teeth during harvests in Bordeaux and Oregon.

After a stint at Saint Clair Family Estate in Marlborough, where she worked her way up to becoming assistant winemaker, Christensen swapped New Zealand for Spain, where she worked for Jorge Ordoñez on his Albariño project in Rías Baixas, while also making sweet wines in Malaga.

The ex-volunteer fire fighter joined Yealands in 2014 as the estate’s vintage winemaker. In her current role as senior winemaker, among the drops she crafts for the estate are a Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling.
