Yealands Estate – A Significant New Industry Player

19-May-2011
One of the most significant developments in Marlborough in recent times has been the establishment of Yealands Estate by Peter Yealands, a high profile entrepreneur. Peter is truly a hands-on man and was personally involved driving machinery in the contouring of the land for planting vines in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys. Peter's vision incorporates full sustainability for the vineyards and winery. Minimising the impact on the environment is of the highest concern. With around 1,000 hectares of vineyard land and an 11,000 tonne capacity winery opened in mid-2008, the size and potential of Yealands Estate has meant assembling a strong team of experienced infrastructure personnel behind the label. Winemaking is handled by Marlborough-raised Tamra Washington and the viticulture is in the care of Gareth Goodsir. www.yealands.com
