Hunter’s Wines are recognised as one of the pioneers of the Marlborough wine industry. Established by Irishman, the late Ernie Hunter, in 1979, the company is headed by Jane Hunter. Some 30 years on, Jane is one of the most awarded women in the New Zealand wine industry with an impressive set of accolades, including an O.B.E, and is a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit (CNZM). Jane is supported by Second-in-Command Peter Macdonald and her nephews, James Macdonald, Senior Winemaker, and Administrator Edward Macdonald.
After winning immediate acclaim in 1986 at the London Sunday Times Wine Festival with the 1985 Fumé Blanc, Hunter’s Wines now boasts over 250 gold medals, more than 40 trophies and innumerable international awards and accolades.
Still 100% family owned, Hunter’s search for excellence never ceases. New varietals, new wine making techniques and new branding constantly keeps the team at Hunter’s true to their commitment of “bringing world class wines to the world”.
