Auntsfield is the home to Marlborough’s very first vineyard and winery which dates back to 1873. While other early settlers saw sheep, David Herd saw wine! He planted the first vines in the region and made a cheeky little Brown Muscat wine and this continued to be made at Auntsfield Estate for another 50 years until 1931.

Some 100 years later in 1973 Frank Yukich of Montana planted vines in the area and declared “Wines from here will become world famous.” Frank was bang on the money.

Brothers Luc and Ben Cowley are the second generation Cowleys to run the Auntsfield Estate family business and carry on the legacy of one of Marlborough and New Zealand wine’s most historically important sites. No pressure lads!

The original cellar door from 1973 has been lovingly restored and the remains of the original homestead still stand on site today.

This is the Auntsfield Single Vineyard Pinot Noir and it’s a seriously classy example of what Marlborough can produce when it comes to Pinot Noir. Scoring 5 Stars and 95/100 with Sam Kim who said “Refined and gorgeously complex, the sensually appealing bouquet shows sweet berry, hazelnut, dried mushroom and thyme nuances, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that’s juicy and finely flowing. Gorgeously styled and structured by seamlessly infused tannins, finishing impressively long and expansive. At its best: now to 2034”
