Anchorage Wines founding family, the Drummond Family have been pioneers of the land since 1866. Alexander Drummond came from Scotland on the sailing ship “The Sir Allan McNab” to Nelson for a better life. Now 5 generations later the family are still working the land with vineyards throughout the Riwaka, Motueka and Moutere areas. Their belief that the rich fertile soils surrounding the Motueka area, coupled with balmy sea breezes and some of New Zealand’s consistently highest sunshine readings are ideal for crafting their range of cool climate aromatic wines.
Anchorage Wines founding family, the Drummonds, hold firm to their belief that the rich fertile soils surrounding the Motueka township, coupled with balmy sea breezes and some of New Zealand’s consistently highest sunshine readings, are the ideal climate in which to craft their aromatic wines. Grapes from their vineyards in the nearby Moutere add a further dimension to their range of classic aromatic varieties.
