Our Family

Proud to be owned and operated by two Kiwi families – the Neylons and the Wiffins – our connection to Marlborough runs deep.

In the early eighties, the Neylons were the first family to grow, process and export green lipped mussels. Then in 1985, they bought prime vineyard land and joined forces with the Wiffins to grow orchard fruits before establishing a grapevine nursery.

Since then, we’ve put in years of hard graft and given all we’ve got to build our vineyards from the ground up.
