How we started

The Marlborough Vines brand was launched in 2007 with Marlborough Vines Sauvignon Blanc.

The 2008 vintage saw Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc joined by Marlborough Vines Pinot Noir. With vintage 2009 the Marlborough Vines range grew considerably with the introduction of a select group of ultra-premium varietal wines targeted at the New Zealand “on-premise” market.

Marlborough Vines Chardonnay was also successfully introduced to the Australian market in August 2009 and this subsequently proved very popular in the New Zealand market too.


“Inspired by nature”

Marlborough Vines is Marlborough Wine Limited’s core brand. The image of Marlborough VInes swaying in the breeze is highly evocative of New Zealand and our unspoilt natural environment.

“Inspired by Nature”, these wines capture the natural majesty and adaptability of New Zealand’s largest and most graceful native grass and our winemaking philosophy…

“To create quality, distinctive New Zealand wines from the regions in which they are most renowned.”
