Fairbourne Estate


Our choice to specialise with Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc comes from our years working with and acknowledging the unique characters of this popular wine variety. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is what we know, it is where we live and it is where our passion lies. Further, we believe there is more to discover from Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc than the widely recognised style. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is the cornerstone variety of the New Zealand and Marlborough wine industry. In a relatively short period of time it has become the style that other new world producers, and an increasing number from the old world, aspire to produce, associate with and benchmark. However, we believe Marlborough's best is yet to come. Our business commits to specialisation. Our familiarity with the soils and sites of Marlborough has evolved. We've identified vineyards growing character consistent and intensely flavoured Sauvignon Blanc. From these, our Fairbourne wines, reflect the purity, strength, clarity and uniqueness of premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Our future embraces sustainable relationships, from the soils to the shelf. We are developing new markets with importers recognising our experience and aspirations, as well as the individual qualities of our wines.

Sarah Inkersell:

Sarah’s been winemaking in New Zealand for over 20 years, it’s in her blood and there’s no sign of any ullage yet. Specialising in premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Sarah has a reputation for making wines described as stunning and elegant with great finesse. It’s no wonder her wines are award winning, world class wines.

When Sarah’s not making wine you’ll find her enjoying the great outdoors, she’s pretty good with a fly rod. This girl is gold. That Russell guy is real lucky….

When Russell’s not at work, he’ll be messing up the kitchen, belting it out on the squash court or fly fishing the mighty Wairau.
