Hunters Wines

A Little About Hunters Wines

Hunter’s history represents Marlborough wine’s history in New Zealand. Hunter’s is the dream of Jane Hunter – a fiercely independent, family – who owned winery established in Marlborough over 30 years ago.

In 1986 Hunter’s surprised the wine world by winning The Sunday Times Vintage Festival in the UK with an oak aged Sauvignon Blanc. Articles about Marlborough began appearing in wine magazines and Hunter’s Chardonnay made Decanter’s Best Wines List.

If New Zealand had a royal family of wine, Jane Hunter would be the queen. Jane is an internationally respected vintner and recipient of the prestigious UK Women in Wine Award and has an OBE.

Exactly 25 years after taking over managing Hunter’s Wines Jane was appointed a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit (CNZM) for services to viticulture.
