We have background in healthcare and technology but it was our shared passion for good wine that lead us to purchase the vineyard in 2016. We fell in love with the site on out first visit and the potential to make great wine was evident in the 10 vintages that had already been produced.
We changed the branding to Eight Ranges shortly afterwards and established a new team to help us bring out the best in the land. Matt Connell is our winemaker and James Dicey helps us in the vineyard.
In addition to the vineyard, we also have two small children, Finley and Georgia, who love nothing better than to put on their gumboots and roam through the tussock on a rabbit-spotting mission. We hope that in being caretakers for the land we can not only maintain it, but improve it for them and for the generations to come.
