Auntsfield Estate

From Country Life, 9:13 pm on 24 April 2015

GreameAuntsfield Estate is the home of Marlborough's first colonial vineyard and winery. The original vineyard was established in 1873 by David Herd who made wine for over 50 years before the property reverted to sheep farming. When Graeme (above) and Linda Cowley first bought the property there was no sign of grapes. It wasn't until they began researching the history of the land that they realised they'd just purchased a pioneering vineyard.
