Welcome to
Tinpot Hut Wines

To reflect her commitment to the land, respected winemaker Fiona Turner took the historic Tinpot Hut frequented by high-country Marlborough musterers as the inspiration for her label.

Fiona Turner - winemaker

Close to 20 years ago, the Hawke's Bay-raised Master of Science honours graduate in biological chemistry changed tack to wine making. In 2003 Fiona planted her Home Block vineyard with husband Hamish at Blind River in the Awatere Valley.

Today, fruit from carefully selected sites in the Wairau and Southern Valleys in Marlborough, as well as Syrah from Hawke's Bay, allows added flexibility in crafting her growing range of Tinpot Hut wines. READ MORE
