Established in 1996, the Mud House name reflects the origin and link to the earth, where the wine begins. The vineyards are nurtured to ensure that the grapes reach optimum ripeness, varietal character and flavor. The winemakers then finely craft the wine to capture the essence of its origin. All Mud House wines are produced sustainably. Mud House touches the earth in their three wine growing regions of New Zealand’s South Island. Stephen Dempster, Mud House’s viticulturist and his team of vineyard managers nurture the grapes along their journey to becoming wines that reflect a sense of place.
