Mount Riley Wines was formed with the intention of producing premium quality Marlborough Wines. The Marlborough region was chosen for its unique terroir and worldwide reputation. This reputation has developed in the short period since 1973 when grapes were first planted. The directors of Mount Riley took extreme care in vineyard selection, visiting dozens of vineyards and sites before choosing our current vineyards. The vineyards have each been chosen for their unique attributes, each different, yet with the potential to produce outstanding quality grapes. Our experienced viticultural team manage all work in the vineyards. Our winemakers believe passionately in the adage that “good wine is made in the vineyard” and they spend an enormous amount of time and effort in the vineyard as an addition to their winemaking role. Mount Riley Wines is a family-owned and operated Marlborough winery. We pride ourselves on producing wines of exceptional quality and value which is made possible through our earth-to-glass philosophy and the strength and talent of our people.
