Brenna Quigley (USA)

Terroir specialist

Decanter Rising Star 2023 

Wine Enthusiast 40 under 40

Brenna is committed to thoughtfully applying the science of geology to the world of wine through both education and hands-on vineyard investigations. She works with wine professionals in all areas of the trade, from growers in France to importers and buyers in the US, in order to precisely define the most impactful elements of their terroirs in a relevant and approachable manner. Wine serves as a lens through which Quigley can introduce people to the broader world around them; under them in most cases. Her podcast series Roadside Terroir is based on a series of geology books called Roadside Geology.

I am thrilled to be headed to Hawke's Bay and to dig into the geology of Aotearoa. I look forward to working with local producers and the stellar lineup of fellow speakers to break down and deeply explore the terroirs of this place, and to better understand the distinct expressions of Aotearoa chardonnay.
