Two extremely talented women forming an irresistible team!
Nina Stocker and Kate Day are multi award-winning winemakers whose lives have been inextricably linked since they became besties at Uni. They've since chalked up more than 30 years combined experience in some of the greatest and most historic winemaking regions on the planet in France, Italy, the US, Portugal, NZ and here in Aus.
Nina became Chief Winemaker for Catalina Sounds, Crowded House and Nanny Goat in NZ, scoring the prized Air New Zealand Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc. Kate was winemaker at the esteemed Willunga-100 winery in McLaren Vale when two of her wines were finalists in the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy. But creating a wine label together was their elusive dream.
It finally became a reality the day they knocked on the door of Naked HQ. Within minutes of trying their wines and realising what a truly formidable team these two made, the Two Pairs deal was done and dusted. And the name Two Pairs? A chance meeting at Kate’s wedding where Nina meet, and then married, the best man - Kate’s husband's identical twin brother. Thus creating... two pairs!

Here’s a couple of bragging rights
Nina, as Chief Winemaker for Catalina Sounds, Crowded House and Nanny Goat in N.Z. scored the prized Air New Zealand Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc. Extraordinary
Kate, when winemaker at the esteemed Willunga-100 winery in McLaren Vale had two of her wines listed as consecutive finalists in the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy. Elite!
But, creating a wine label with each other has always been their shared dream!
Strangely, the more experience and knowledge hard earnt over the years by these two super-talented winemakers made their dreams seem further and further out of reach - such is the harsh, brutal, reality of breaking a new label into the Australian wine market. It’s really tough!
Nina and Kate’s lives changed forever the day they knocked on the door of Naked HQ
Within minutes of Poll trying their sample wines and realising what a truly formidable team these two made, the penny suddenly dropped and the TWO PAIRS deal was immediately done and dusted.
FACT: these two women make brilliant wines, together!
To celebrate, from this moment on, Nina and Kate’s range of exclusive, handmade, regionally definitive wine is yours.
Nina and Kate are collectively TWO PAIRS - their supreme reputations certainly precede them, but their wines are right here, right now!
P.s. Ok, so why the name Two Pairs? Nina Stocker (real name, Katherine) and Kate Day (real name, Kathryn) are lifelong besties. A chance meeting at Kate’s wedding saw Nina meet and fall in love with the best man - the identical twin brother of Kate’s husband. All clear!? Wowwwww!
