Grove Mill was established in Marlborough in 1988 by a dedicated group of local growers and wine enthusiasts. Their mission: to make premium quality varietal wines that fully captured and reflected the delicious and unique intensity of Marlborough grapes.
Since that time Grove Mill has established a worldwide reputation for distinctive wines that are full flavoured, food friendly, complex, elegant and well balanced.
To make their dream a reality an historic Malthouse (The Mill), a Marlborough landmark in Grovetown, Blenheim was purchased and transformed into a 150 tonne winery. From this home and this location came the name of both the company and the signature brand - "Grove Mill".
From the first vintage the consistent quality of the wines, their immense consumer appeal, together with national and international awards and accolades, saw local demand increase significantly.
A new home
Grove Mill continued to grow vintage upon vintage - doubling production each year for the first five years of operation. In 1993 it was recognised the company would soon outgrow "the Mill".
Eighteen hectares of land were purchased in the Waihopai Valley just south of Renwick, 14 kilometres south of Blenheim. There the Grove Mill home vineyard was planted and in its midst a state-of-the-art winery, capable of processing 1000 tonne of grapes (around 70,000 cases), was built. New Zealand's Prime Minister officially opened it on 3 September 1994
Quality is paramount. Grove Mill on site facilities cover all phases of the wine making process from the grape pressing, winemaking, finishing, bottling and warehousing.
