Our people


Our Winemaking Team

At the heart our winemaking team are Kel, Nick, Paul and John – dedicated perfectionists and fans of pristine, vibrant, cool climate wines. Taking great care with batch selection, and with a light touch of handling, they work closely with the viticulture team to craft quintessential Marlborough wines of elegance and complexity.


Our Viticultural Team

Our committed viticultural team is three quarters Marlborough born and bred and one quarter long time local!   Knowing the region and the industry inside out, Bruce, Brian, Jill and Cam understand the extra efforts needed to grow the truly premium fruit demanded for Cairnbrae’s wines.

Our range of vineyards deliver sub regional characteristics in flavour and aromas, adding to the complexity and elegant style of Cairnbrae’s wines
