the team

Director/Production/Export/Dogsbody. Robin Ransom

Robin dreamed up the idea of getting into grapes and his reward for that is to be jack of most trades and master of none.

Winemaker/NZ Sales & Marketing. Gabriel Ransom

Gabe limbered up for these roles with stints at wineries in New Zealand, Switzerland and Italy and at a very trendy London winebar.

Winebar & Cellar Door Manager. Marion Ransom

Wife and partner, mother and sister to the three other key staff members you can understand why Marion’s role is fairly central.

Vineyard Manager. Rob Pinder

Rob is Marion’s brother and his arm was twisted to undertake this role many years ago, having had plenty of previous horticultural experience around NZ.

Art & Design. Julian Ransom

Son, brother and nephew of the above. Our gallery area features Jude’s stylish paintings, including his indigenous birds series for our K Syrah labels. He takes commissions for portraits, pet paintings, landscapes.

Rodent Control Operative. Vinny the Jack Russell

This guy is dynamite on rodents and most other things which move. Great little worker and a good friend.
