Invivo Marlborough and Central Otago, and Graham Norton Wine Selections


Invivo Wines was created by Rob Cameron and Tim Lightbourne in 2007 and has experienced amazing growth since from a combination of good winemaking and bold marketing. The brand is seen widely in the New Zealand market and enjoys excellent overseas sales. The inclusion of T.V. host Graham Norton as a shareholder with input in winemaking has been a strong influence on the company’s success, but the most important aspect of its growth has been the outstanding equity crowd funding, firstly in 2015 and then again earlier this year. Invivo now holds the record for the Southern Hemisphere’s largest crowdfunded company for any business. The latest news is that Invivo has a new winery home in the government built winery at Te Kauwhata. The branding is more distinctive now, the ‘Invivo’ wines representing Rob and Tim’s work, and the ‘Graham Norton’ wines having the blending inputs of Graham Norton. The latter brand is growing particularly well. Here, I review a selection from both labels. www.invivowines.com
