Saint Clair Family Estate introduced their first wines in 1994. Owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, Marlborough's viticulture pioneers since 1978, this New Zealand winery has earned a reputation for its exceptional wine quality. It is one of the leading Kiwi wine companies with several prestigious awards to its name. Vineyards in various subregions of Marlborough, including Wairau, Awatere and Ure Valleys, allow Saint Clair to create wines with special regional characters. Saint Clare wines are produced from a wide range of varieties, including Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Viognier, Merlot, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Syrah. The winery produces four ranges of wines – the Reserve Range, Pioneer Blocks, Premium Range and Vicar's Choice.
