Hunter’s is a winemaking family, and their passion is making quality wines that are synonymous with quality and innovation in winemaking and bringing award-winning wines from Marlborough to the world.

Hunter's is the only Marlborough winery established in the 1970s to still be 100% owned by its original family. Ernie was the spark that started the winery but through Jane Hunter’s strong determination, she resolved to build on the vineyard's proven potential and success. Hunter's has always been a true family effort, wholly owned and managed by Jane Hunter, with the help of her brother-in-law Peter Macdonald. Jane’s two nephews James and Edward Macdonald are also now very much a part of the business, with James now Senior Winemaker and Edward, General Manager.

Hunter’s Wines is one of Marlborough’s most highly acclaimed wineries at national and international wine competitions and is still breaking new ground with fresh varietals, innovative wine-making techniques, such as their Offshoot Pet Nat Sauvignon Blanc, and consistently seeking the best for their wines.

Quality and sustainability have been Hunter’s cornerstones since their first vintage in 1982. They are a family winery and want to protect the land for future generations. From the moment you drive through the entry to Hunter’s, you are greeted by an extensive native garden that provides an outstanding setting of indigenous Wairau Plains dryland vegetation. It is an award-winning, unique and distinctive setting for a Marlborough winery. The half-acre of native garden has numerous native birdlife, such as Tui and Bellbirds enjoying the habitat.

Our Cellar Door proudly showcases our extensive range of wines, including the celebrated MiruMiru™ sparkling wine, the Offshoot range, and our signature Sauvignon Blanc. Enhance your visit by indulging in a light lunch, making your day truly exceptional.
