Hillersden

Basic Info

Hillersden is defined by one family and a visionary winemaker who have taken up the task of crafting Marlborough’s only family owned single estate wine label from the Upper Wairau Valley on the edge of New Zealand’s favorite wine region. We like to think we keep close to home the traditional and rustic processes of winemaking, while taking an elevated, engineered approach to sustainability striving for the highest of environmental standards. We believe that creating a lasting legacy is defined by what we choose to do today that is going to make a difference in the lives of others for years to come, laying a foundation for Hillersden to be loved as the vine-to-table wine of tomorrow. Our namesake Hillersden was once a settler’s township in the Upper Wairau Valley, and later one of the country’s largest sheep stations with a history extending back a century before Marlborough became synonymous with good wine. Hillersden was, until we moved in, but a faint memory of an industrious pre-war New Zealand, the town had dissipated, the signs were taken down, and Hillersden’s greatness was forgotten. The entire Hillersden team is committed to reviving Hillersden; to honoring its tradition and rich history by creating a fully sustainable Vineyard, and in doing so creating a new legacy and home for the modern wine lover.
