Meet Greg Lane
Chief Winemaker at Mt Difficulty

A South Australian local, Greg grew up surrounded by wine culture from day dot and earned a Bachelor of Oenology from the University of Adelaide with First Class Honours. From there he honed his craft at Shaw and Smith in Adelaide, France, Italy and the United States before being drawn back to Marlborough to take up the reigns at Grove Mill. Greg has most recently been the winemaker at Central Otago winery, Amisfield, before becoming Chief Winemaker at Mt Difficulty in 2021.

Highly regarded amongst the Winemaking community, Greg was named New Zealand Young Winemaker of the Year in 2018 and is keen to continue establishing Mt Difficulty wines as true benchmarks of Central Otago, and indeed new world Pinot Noir.

When off duty, Greg loves cooking, tramping and fishing around New Zealand.
