8 Ranges Wines are crafted by our French winemakers from grapes grown on our Certified Sustainable Tussock Ridge Vineyard, which was established in 2001 by Mark Borrie and Trevor Deaker.
For many years, Mark and Trevor have had a passion and enthusiasm for fine wines – and for the Central Otago landscape. These have been the motivations for the establishment of 8 Ranges Wines. The aim is to always produce wines of distinction and excellence which express the local terroir.
Tussock Ridge is a boutique vineyard of less than 3 Ha, situated on the edge of a high terrace in the middle of the Alexandra Basin amidst spectacular mountains in the Central Otago region of New Zealand.
The vineyard overlooks the Clutha River between Alexandra and Clyde, and is located just above the Central Otago Rail Trail.
