Learn About Lawson's Dry Hills

Lawson's Dry Hills is a medium-sized Marlborough wine company committed to the production of premium Marlborough wines. The company was founded in 1992 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, when they decided to make wine themselves rather than on-selling the grapes that they had been growing since 1980.
