About Delta Vineyard

The Delta Farm, first established in 1848, is situated on the low-vigour clay soils of Marlborough's Wairau Valley. It was purchased in 2000 by four partners, including David Gleave MW and winemaker Matt Thomson. “The aim is to make the very best expression possible of Pinot from Marlborough,” explains Matt. The second vintage of the 2005 Delta Vineyard Pinot Noir vindicated his vision when it won Champion Pinot Noir of Show at the 2006 New Zealand International Wine Show. The Hatter's Hill is a selection of the best Pinot Noir grown on the vineyard's hilly sites. Over the last 10 years it’s fair to say that Delta has redefined the notion of great-value, über-expressive New Zealand Pinot Noir.

About Heather Stewart

Heather moved to Marlborough in 2008 after completing a Master of Science in Psychology at Canterbury University. Her intention was to experience the romance of harvest then move to Melbourne to pursue a career in architectural psychology. Plans changed however when she fell in love with the wine industry and Marlborough. Since basing herself in Marlborough she has completed a Graduate Diploma in Oenology, and has worked harvests for prominent wine companies in Tuscany and California. Heather spent five years as assistant winemaker at a large family wine company before taking on the role of winemaker for The Delta Wine Company. She took the reins as head winemaker in May 2017.
When not working she loves to explore the world, but always loves coming home to Marlborough, where she enjoys sailing in the Marlborough Sounds, rowing on the Wairau River and sharing local food and wines with friends.
