Founded in 1980, Martinborough Vineyard was a trailblazer in the region and the first to plant the variety for which the region is best known, Pinot Noir. They lay claim to the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the district consistently producing world-class wines from their Home block, Martinborough Terraces blocks and, more recently, their Burnt Spur vineyards.

Their vines are still low-cropped and lovingly hand-tended, as in the early days, with minimal intervention in the winery, in order to let the fruit speak for itself. Winemaker, Paul Mason, follows in the illustrious winemaking footsteps of Larry McKenna (1986-1999) and Claire Mulholland (2000-2007). Paul leads a small team focused on sustainably producing small quantities of exclusive fine wine which reflect the intrinsic characters of their site.

Their philosophy is to produce the finest Pinot Noir in the New World with the focus on “Handcrafted Excellence in Wine”.
