It’s a place. It’s a winery. It used to be called Glenvale (not to be confused with Gloriavale!) but we now know ’em as Esk Valley.

Built in 1933 by an Englishman (Robert Bird) who produced fortified wine from the 30s through to the 70s until the Esk name was created for a premium range of table wines. These days owned under the umbrella of the highly successful Villa Maria brand, although they do operate as an independent winery with their own winemaking team and vineyards including winemaking legend Gordon Russell.

Esk Valley source grapes for their Sauvy from a couple of other well known valleys – the Awatere and Wairau valleys in Marlborough. One man who knows his valleys is Esk’s winemaker Gordon Russell, he says this one “exhibits the riper, passionfruit flavour of the Wairau alongside the fresh, herbaceous notes of the Awatere”

There ain’t no better way to enjoy this style of Sauvy than nicely chilled with fresh fish and seafood
