Ballochdale Vineyard Estate
Awatere Valley Marlborough

In reality it has been more hard work and a modest amount of fun but a big sense of achievement.

The Directors consist of Garry Neill (B. Ag. Com.) who is also the CEO of the Company, Andrew Shaw, a very experienced international Accountant and Tax Consultant who represents the offshore contingent and Wellington agri-businessman Chris Bryan, who holds various primary industry directorships.

The Shareholders consist of a bunch of smart, enthusiastic, English Pinotphiles, two local investors and the Neill Family. This is a great collection of people who all contribute in their own different way to offer a broad and varied perspective to the success of the business.

Viticulturist Mark Allen, a well-known personality in the wine industry, has consistently and expertly contributed to the program over many years. He is a strong advocate for the attributes and versatility of the site and a good knowledge of the capabilities of the vineyard.
