Mount Riley was founded in 1992, when owner John Buchanan decided to leave his job with the second largest winery in New Zealand to go back to his roots. John is a 5th generation Marlborough citizen and Mount Riley is a true family winery; with John’s daughter Amy managing winery operations and his son-in-law, Matt Murphy as the winemaker. Matt was the winemaker at Craggy Range for 7 years before marrying Amy and joining Mount Riley. Mount Riley owns 10ha in Marlborough and the winery is 5 miles south of Blenheim. Each vineyard brings unique qualities and terroir to the Marlborough blend.
