Mount Riley

Mount Riley Wines is a family owned and run Marlborough winery. We craft wines that are approachable and down to earth – much like us.

Winemaker

Matt - Chief Winemaker

I grew up on a farm in the North Island’s King Country surrounded by a pretty down- to-earth bunch of people. Winemaking attracted me because it’s like farming, with a strong connection to the land. As a winemaker I get to see it all the way through from growing the best grapes to making great wine and then selling it. I moved to Marlborough in 2007 to be with Amy. I feel really lucky to be living here – working alongside family and supported by an awesome crew, in one of the most picturesque parts of the world with great mountain biking and fishing on our back door.
