About Spring Creek Estate

 
 

Who the?

Our family have been involved in the wine industry in South Australia and New Zealand for many years meaning we have long held an interest in the industry.

Whilst growing up in Marlborough, we have worked in the family vineyards and winery, learning from our aunt, Jane Hunter. I am now a winemaker, and Ed does the desk stuff, at Hunter’s Wines in Marlborough.

The Spring Creek Estate is a branch that has given us the chance to understand the mechanics of the industry from viticulture through to marketing and selling. Under the labels we have introduced a range of Marlborough varieties selected by Ed and I, as well as winemaking colleagues. They were chosen to reflect the characters of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley in the heart of New Zealand’s premier wine growing region.

The focus of these labels are to show that expressive, quality wines are still able to be made at affordable prices.
