Winery DRY RIVER

Established by pioneering winegrower Neil McCallum in 1979, Dry River is a small boutique producer in Martinborough. Some the winery’s vines were first planted as early as 1979 on the famed Martinborough terrace, an extremely dry, gravely free draining site. Viticulture follows a philosophy of sustainability with the vines unirrigated and cropped to low levels. In the winery, the overarching philosophy is one of minimal intervention. Dry River has a stellar reputation for producing small quantities of super-premium artisanal wines. The range encompasses Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Syrah and a Late Harvest Riesling. In 2003 the winery was sold to American financier Julian Robertson, although Neil McCallum is still involved in the day to day management of the winery.
