Arriving in the first wave of European settlement of Marlborough, the Forrest family have farmed the land for generations. Drs John and Brigid Forrest began creating their wines here in 1988. John brings scientific discipline to winemaking, innate creative flare and an exuberant personality - blending art and science to make wines of the highest quaility and purity.
The wines have given Forrest an enviable international reputation. John and Brigid remain hands-on, are passionate about their wines and enjoy creating wines for you that are uniquely New Zealan
