Description

The Ten Sisters and their brother are fourth-generation New Zealanders and their ancestors were among the first settlers of the southern tip of the South Island of New Zealand. Ellie Bartow, daughter of one of the Ten Sisters, and her husband Dennis, now manage the family’s wine business.

The family vineyard is in the Southern Valleys subregion, closer to the mountains, creating a cooler climate that leads to later ripening and more vibrant flavors.
