History & Geography
Established by Irishman, the late Ernie Hunter in 1979, the company is now headed by Jane Hunter, known around the world as ‘the First Lady of New Zealand wine’. Some 30 years on, Jane is the most awarded women in the New Zealand wine industry with an impressive set of accolades, including an O.B.E, a Companion to the New Zealand Order of Merit (CNZM), and in 2013 the first woman to be inducted into the New Zealand Wine Hall of Fame. In 2016 Jane received the Wolf Blass AM Award in Australia and the Wine Marlborough Lifetime Achievement Award. Jane is backed by a great team and three generations of family. Hunter’s won immediate acclaim in 1986 at the London Sunday Times Wine Festival with our 1985 Fumé Blanc. This award not only put Hunter’s Wines on the map but introduced the world to New Zealand wine. 2014 marked Hunter’s Wines 30th vintage.
