Our Vineyards
Over the past 20 years, increased production has been spurred by our ongoing investment in Dillon’s Point vineyard in the heart of the Wairau Valley. This 296- acre vineyard was developed from scratch when we purchased the property in 1993, and is now one of the finest vineyards in Marlborough.
In addition to Dillon’s Point, we also own 12 other vineyards in the Wairau Valley. It is our cross-section of diverse vineyards across the valley that allow our team and Chief Winemaker to select the optimum harvest time for each block, ensuring we consistently achieve the profile of grapes best suited to our world-renowned Sauvignon Blanc and other wine varieties.
1993 Dillon’s Point
1999 Aitken & Marlborough Ridge
2001 New Dillon’s Point, Eden & Hunter
2002 Lofthouse
2003 Bay Block, Barns Block & Cuddon
2007 Sand Dunes, Stump Creek & Hidden Valley
Total Vineyards: 13
Total Land Area: 720 acres

Our Winery
The Giesen Winery is a classic example of the philosophy that flows through all aspects of our business: Simplicity is Key. It is our firm belief that beautiful architecture is not the secret to producing the best quality wine. Our winery is state-of-the-art in terms of functionality, which is best suited to the purpose of our business. Like most parts of our business, the winery has expanded dramatically since we first purchased the original winery site, bare land in Vernon Street, Blenheim, in 1999. Eight years later, the adjoining land was purchased for expansion, with our goal being to develop and evolve our winery with equipment of the highest possible standard. We now have the ability to process in excess of 7,000 tonnes of grapes and a tank capacity of 8.5 million litres.
The combination of high-tech equipment and the skills of our operators at all levels within the winery is what enables the winemaking team to gently and precisely extract everything that is quintessentially Marlborough from our grapes. The winery has been set up to help the harvesting process move as quickly or slowly as is dictated by Mother Nature.

Our Bottling Facility
In 2006, with storage capacity in Blenheim doubling to reach 4 million litres, the brothers decided the time was right to establish the new bottling operation, which would allow them to double their production capacity.
Due to its proximity to the port and infrastructure, Christchurch was chosen for the location of the new plant. The brothers’ ongoing relationship with the city’s service providers was also behind the decision to have this part of the business remain in Christchurch.
Our purpose-built bottling and warehouse facility has streamlined the business and has been a key driver behind the continuing growth in our export market. Just a 30-minute drive separates our wine from the Port of Lyttelton, from where it can be shipped directly to anywhere in the world.
