It all started In 1986 Mr. Bob Nixon had a vision that grapes would ripen on the Eastern slopes of Mt. Gisborne. Turns out he was right. It started out with just a few vines to see how they would go. It then developed as a love and passion and a wonderful lifestyle.
Both Bob and Barbara were active in the wine tourism industry enjoyed inviting people to share their love of wine and wine education. What you see is what you got with Bob and Barbara, no attitude, authentic, genuine and honest, they aimed to pass these qualities onto all staff who have come through the doors and hope their legacy will now continue.
With new Owners now we hope to continue what Bob and Barb started and wish to continue the legacy.
