WindRush are second generation organic producers. Callum’s family have been farming organically since the late 90’s originally with sheep and beef in Otago and now viticulture in Marlborough. In 2014 they purchased a small property in Renwick and set about planting a Chardonnay vineyard. Deciding to plant Chardonnay because it's a personal favourite and not a variety we have on any of our family owned properties. This vineyard has become an obsession and it has given us a great amount of satisfaction to get it to a point where we are able to release this wine.
