A simple, honest drop

Our highly awarded Montford Estate range of wines offer a true taste of New Zealand’s most beloved wine regions.

Fruit-driven, sustainably grown, and loved by wine critics and wine drinkers alike. These vibrant wines are honest, elegant and expressive, crafted by a Kiwi farming family with deep agricultural roots in Marlborough, New Zealand.

So, how did a Marlborough farming family, growing potatoes, and grazing cattle, became one of New Zealand's leading wine producers?

From New Zealand's most beloved, heartland wine regions

Montford Estate wines hail from the wine regions best known for each varietal: crisp, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough; ripe, bold Merlot-Cabernet from the sunny Hawke's Bay, and brooding, savoury Pinot Noir from Central Otago.

"Classically expressed, the wine shows passionfruit, apricot, kiwifruit and rockmelon characters on the nose. It's equally satisfying on the palate, offering terrific fruit purity together with fine texture and bright acidity, offering gorgeous drinking."

From a humble farming family

Haysley MacDonald, the owner and founder of Montford Estate Wines, wasn't always a wine grower and vigneron. His ties to working the land, and crafting incredible quality produce from it, started long before Montford Estate was launched to critical acclaim in 2019.
