Marlborough's Lawson’s Dry Hills has always made a difference. From humble, yet pioneering beginnings 25 years ago to the range of award-winning, world-class wines they make today, the small, hands-on team has ownership of every part of the process from grape to glass. Never complacent, never satisfied to just sit back and leave things to chance, they are continually exploring how they can make something that is already good, even better.

Location of Vineyard

Lawson’s Dry Hills has four vineyards in different sites and sources fruit from a further thirteen vineyards in Marlborough, including the main sub-regions of the Wairua, Waihopai, and Awatere Valleys. These different regions and carefully selected vineyard sites provide varying characteristics derived from the different soils and microclimates, giving many options when it comes to blending.

Winemaking Philosophy

Lawson’s Dry Hills’ winemaking approach focuses on growing wonderful fruit from exceptional Marlborough vineyard sites and crafting these grapes into characterful, expressive wines. Over 25 years, experience has allowed the team to purchase and develop a number of blocks and also enter into long term relationships with a small number of growers.

The resulting wine styles are about expressing the authentic varietal characters as seen in the vineyard and nurturing these through the winemaking process with as little interference as possible. Add a certain special something that is believed can only come from passion and an inquisitive spirit and you have a range of highly memorable wines sure to delight on any occasion.
