The Millton Vineyard

New Zealand - Gisborne

 Demeter Certified Biodynamic & Biogro Certified Organic

James & Annie Millton established Millton Vineyards & Winery in 1984. Their four individual dry farmed vineyards are situated on the East Coast of New Zealand in the wine appellation of Gisborne. A small artisan winegrower, Millton was the first producer in New Zealand to gain Bio-Gro certification for organic wine production in 1989. Having practiced traditional methods of cultivation and production centred on biodynamic principles since inception, Millton were the first winegrowers in the Southern Hemisphere to gain the biodynamic certification Demeter in 2009. This involves growing the grapes without the use of herbicide, insecticide, systemic fungicides or soluble fertilisers, as well as adherence to the rhythms of nature; the earth, sun, moon and beyond...

Millton Vineyards & Winery are members of international group La Renaissance des Appellations and New Zealand collaboration The Family of Twelve. In 2012, Her Majesty The Queen awarded James the Insignia of Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to the wine industry. Later the same year, Millton were included in the New River Green 50, New Zealand’s top 50 companies helping the environment.
In 2013, James and Annie were named “New Zealand Winegrower Personalities of the Year”.
