Great wine comes from having care for – and control over – the whole process from vine to bottle.
From discovering an abandoned vineyard in the foothills of Mount Brown, to planting on fields of the old Lime Loader site in Waipara Valley, North Canterbury; the wine Mount Brown Estates produces begins with a love for the land and ensuring our activities are sustainable.
Our wines capture the essence of North Canterbury. From full bodied and luscious Pinot Gris; crisp and fragrant Sauvignon Blanc; delightfully citrusy Riesling; to intense dark cherry Pinot Noir – all Mount Brown Estates wine is estate-grown, made and bottled.
In fact much of it is made and bottled within metres of the vineyard. We do it all in-house to give us full control and ensure the highest of quality. In short, our wine is made right, here.
Mount Brown Estates was established in 2003 by Tony and his daughter Catherine. Together they worry too much about the weather, work with great people and drink some stunning wine!
As a third generation come on board, their responsibility for the land is passed on with an ever-growing understanding of the relationship between the land, the region, and the fruit.
