New Zealand - Marlborough, Central Otago

The Summerhouse Wine Company is poised to shake up the premium Marlborough wine scene with its award-winning range of accessible and authentic wines.

Owned by the Neylon and Wiffin families, they bring a heritage of hard-graft and integrity forged in the primary industries of Marlborough. Since turning their hands to wine 20 years ago, this strong legacy along with a focus on investment has pushed Summerhouse into the ranks of the most dynamic producers in the region.

Backbreaking work is required to farm the Summerhouse vineyards, which are scattered throughout the Marlborough sub-regions.  Chosen for their unique attributes, these sites are meticulously managed, overseen by leading viticulturist Rex Sunde, and return small crops with enviable purity and concentration.  

The winemaking process is guided by Sam Harrop MW’s sympathetic winemaking philosophy to achieve balance, harmony and an abundance of personality.  

The hero’s are produced from Marlborough’s superstar varieties – a Pinot Noir from the renowned Southern Valleys region, and a Sauvignon Blanc that displays a lovely sub-regional expression.  But what sets Summerhouse apart is its investment in the lesser-grown varieties, such as a single vineyard Verdelho and Syrah, as well as a Vintage Blanc de Blanc Methode Traditionelle made in the Champagne style with 4 years resting on its fermentation lees in bottle.   

Family-owned with a strong investment culture and a team of expert viticulturists and winemakers, this is a wine producer with its eyes firmly set on the future.
