Hunter's Wines

Jane Hunter, OBE is a charismatic ambassador for New Zealand wines, possessing in abundance the zestful, feisty and lively character of her country’s sauvignons. When Jane and her late husband, Ernie planted their first vines in the picturesque Wairau Valley in Marlborough in 1979 the potential of the area for producing world-class wines was unknown. However in the 1980s after the release of early vintages their wines started winning international awards, previously unheard of for New Zealand wines. Then tragically, only a few years into their venture, Ernie was killed in a road accident. From 1987 Jane became sole owner, viticulturalist and managing director of Hunter’s Wines. She carried on developing the business, despite challenging circumstances, fulfilling and even exceeding the original dream and even finding time to record her experiences in her book ‘Growing a Legacy’.
Hunter’s consistently delivers one of Marlborough’s very best sauvignons year after year. The immaculately-tended vines are amongst the oldest in the region, which is the secret to the wine's intense style. Although other grape varieties are planted including riesling, pinot gris, gewürztraminer and pinot noir Hunter’s Sauvignon Blanc undoubtedly remains the best known wine of the estate, expressing the depth and complexity of the grape. Stoneburn is the second label of the estate and delivers excellent value for money. We could think of no better source for our Exhibition Marlborough sauvignon than...
