Caythorpe

The Bishell family represent the modern face of New Zealand farming where success can come from diversification. The Bishells established themselves in Middle Renwick Road in Marlborough as sheep farmers and crop-growers from the arrival of David Bishell from Caythorpe in Lincolnshire in 1876. Now in the fifth generation, over half of their land is devoted to grapes, with most of the 110 ha planted to Sauvignon Blanc. Having proven themselves as contract growers, the Bishells embarked on their own label ‘Caythorpe’ (as you do), bottling a portion of their best fruit with the contacted winemaking of Jeremy McKenzie at Isabel Estate. The first wine was a Sauvignon Blanc from the 2015 vintage. The Caythorpe range has grown to include a Riesling and a Pinot Noir.
