Dog Point Vineyard The Partners Behing Dog Point Winery Image
Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable wine-growing experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and, James and Wendy Healy. Ivan and James met while working at Cloudy Bay Vineyards and quickly established an enduring friendship along with an appreciation of good wine. Ivan was Cloudy Bay's viticulturist for 18 years and in the latter years a Director while James was the Company's Oenologist for 12 years. After finding they shared the same aspirations, James and Ivan decided to return to a more ‘hands-on’ approach to winemaking. Using fruit from the 80 hectare Dog Point Vineyard established by Ivan and Margaret, the pair launched the Dog Point label in February 2004. Since then they have earned Organic Certification under the BioGro New Zealand Programme which is an independent certification process established to promote environmentally friendly, sustainable and responsible practices in the vineyard and winery.

Dog Point Vineyard is one of the earliest private estate vineyards established in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley with some of the oldest vines in Marlborough. The name Dog Point refers to a nearby area that dates back to Marlborough’s earliest European settlement and sheep farming history where the shepherds' dogs sometimes became lost or wandered off. The iconic New Zealand native plant the Ti Kouka ‘cabbage’ tree on the label is also a distinguishing feature of the Dog Point Vineyard property.

Marlborough's Wairau Valley is the major grape growing region of New Zealand, a confined geographical area at the northern tip of the South Island. Abundant sunshine, low rainfall and cool autumn nights characterise our long growing season, enabling the slow evolution of a rich array of vibrant fruit flavors.

Fruit for our wines is sourced from selected vineyard plantings dating back to the late 1970's. These older well-established vines situated on free draining silty clay loams are supplemented with fruit from closely planted hillside vines with a clay loam influence.
