While it has become a familiar name worldwide for Sauvignon Blanc, the region’s most planted grape variety, Marlborough is also renowned for its Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling as the free-draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub-soils in the Wairau, Waihopai and Awatere valleys provide ideal growing conditions.
For Babich Wines, Marlborough makes a heavy contribution to the company’s portfolio. Babich has invested in substantial vineyard land and in production facilities.
Viticulturalist, John Sowman and his team manage all of Babich’s Marlborough vineyards totaling 230-hectares (568 acres).
