History & Geography
Saint Clair Family Estate was founded by Neal and Judy Ibbotson who are the directors of the winery with more than 30 years viticulture knowledge of the Marlborough region. The company is a family business with the next generation also involved. Son Tony is responsible for the design of all Saint Clair’s packaging, promotional material and advertising. He owns a design consultancy business, the Creative Method, in Sydney. Tony designed the original Saint Clair labels back in 1994 when he was a student. He has been refining and expanding the range of Saint Clair labels ever since. Daughters Sarina and Julie both work within the business in sales and marketing after studying wine business marketing at Adelaide.
