Young Bacchus Estate

Young Bacchus Estate is a reincarnation of the former Cambridge Road Home block of Benfield & Delamare, acquired by Norman and Linda Millar in 2012. Norman and Linda found the property for sale on Trade Me, and the owning of a small vineyard fitted in with their retirement plans. They have maintained the 3,000 vines, replacing plants that stopped performing, and the viticulture is now to the care of district veteran Glenys Hansen. The Millars sold off the winemaking plant and converted the winery back to accommodation, where they now live. - Raymond Chan
