Vynfields – Wine2Trade Portfolio

01-Sep-2020
The heart of Vynfields is the 5.3 hectare organic and biodynamic vineyard situated on Omarere Road in the Martinborough Terraces sub region of Martinborough. In 1998, Kaye McAulay and John Bell purchased the vineyard planted in 1991 to make world-class wine.
The vineyard is fully certified organic to Bio-Gro N.Z. standards (BioGro N.Z. No. 4622), and biodynamic to Demeter certification, and is planted primarily in Pinot Noir, supported by Riesling and a few rows of the mysterious ‘Mad Red' variety. Most of the viticultural work is performed by hand, as is the winemaking. The wines are made by Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling of Schubert winery.
The Vynfields two-storey villa is a landmark in Martinborough. Originally the historic Maranui homestead in Lyall Bay, Wellington, Kaye and John transported the building over the Rimutaka Hills in five pieces to have it fully restored on site. The homestead is featured on the Vynfields label. Kaye and John also offer very popular self-contained vineyard accommodation, being only a few minutes from the Martinborough Village Square. At the end of February 2014,John and Kaye sold Vynfields to Harry and Zinder Guo, and their syndicate of family and friends, who will take over from May.  John and Kaye will remain on board for 6 months over the transitional period.
The Vynfields wines have won numerous national and international awards and can be placed among the top flight of Martinborough. www.vynfields.com
