Meet Dave Shepherd
Head Viticulturist in Martinborough

A Marlborough local, born and raised in Blenheim, Dave joined the team at Te Kairanga as the viticulturist in 2013. Dave focuses on the seasonal variations within all of our vineyards in Martinborough and has worked his way along the Martinborough terrace, from the top of the exposed Ruatukopuna vineyard right down to the township over the last two decades since moving to the Wairarapa. 

A big fan of Pinot Noir, Dave enjoys local game meat as the perfect pairing for some of our Pinot Noirs.

Dave's team include this crew of vineyard workers who prune, pick and nurture our vines.
