Alana was established in 1993 and is now one of Martinborough’s leading producers. It is a fully integrated wine company; it grows grapes, makes the wine in its state of the Art winery with minimal intervention and markets the finished product to a select cliental both worldwide and within New Zealand.
The wines are crafted with care resulting in quality wine with a collage of subtle complexities which are a combination of terroir, growing season climate, viticulture and exceptional winemaking.

Alastair has a passion for minimalist wine making, utilizing native yeast, low levels of SO2 and concentrating on letting the grapes express themselves.
