Our Story

Inspired by the sheep farming origins of her own Home Block vineyard, winemaker Fiona Turner named her range of wines after the historic “Tinpot Hut”; a Marlborough landmark frequented by local high country sheep herders. Nestled between the Awatere and Wairau Valleys, the Tinpot Hut symbolizes the history of agriculture in the region and reflects its evolution from a sheep farming heartland to one of the world’s most dynamic wine regions. 
"The French call it 'terroir' - we like to call it 'balance' - the harmony of the vine, the soil, the climate and the subsequent grapes harvested at optimal ripeness to produce elegant wines.
