“After having worked for 16 years in France, winemaker Jenny Dobson returned to New Zealand in 1996. Her home country was at the time slowly changing from being only a country of sheep and rugby to being also a country of wine.

“The region she chose to settle in was Hawke’s Bay on New Zealand’s North Island. Maybe because this is a region well suited to Bordeaux grapes. She had worked for 12 years in Médoc in Bordeaux so she was well acquainted with these grapes.”
