Delta Vineyards is a Marlborough based winery, established by kiwi winemaker Matt Thomson and David Gleave, an extremely successful London-based importer of wines. The pair came to know each other in Italy, where Matt has worked each year since 1994, during the harvest period. Over several vintages and during the long journeys between wineries in Italy, Matt and David discussed at length the potential for Pinot Noir in Marlborough. Their plans finally came to fruition in 2000, when an ideal site in the Waihopai Valley became available. It is here in this steep-sided valley - similar in shape to the Greek symbol Delta - that they craft exceptional Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc wines.
