Tinpot Hut   Tinpot Hut Logo

Tinpot Hut wines are made primarily from fruit grown on winemaker Fiona Turner`s vineyard in Blind River.

Fiona, who has worked with Matt Thomson for a number of years, supplements her own grapes with fruit from other growers in Marlborough and Hawkes Bay.

The tinpot hut that gave its name to Fiona`s wines is an old mustering hut in the remote hills between the Wairau and Awatere Valleys.

The huts were used as a base for musterers as they rounded up the sheep that had been in the hills from spring to autumn. The name links Marlborough's past as a sheep farming centre with its current state as one of the world's most dynamic wine regions.
