Invivo was founded in 2008 by a couple of mates who liked New Zealand wine so much they started a winery to make some. 9 years on they’re riding high, with sales to over 17 countries they’ve been presented export awards and made it to the Deloitte Fast50 list. The wines have been awarded over 130 medals including World’s Best Sauvignon Blanc in 2011. In 2015, Invivo was the first New Zealand company to reach a record equity crowdfund $2million raise to fuel further growth.  Even chat show host Graham Norton is a shareholder and part time winemaker for Invivo!
