The founder of Te Pa winery, Haysley MacDonald, can trace his roots back 800 years to early Maori settlers who came to live on Wairau Bar in modern-day Marlborough. Although his family have worked this land for generations, it was only in 2003 that Haysley began to convert the family’s dairy and grain farm to vineyards. Today the estate has some 500 acres under vine on Wairau Bar and in the Awatere Valley. In 2003 Haysley and his family started a new adventure, converting their dairy and crop farm into vineyards and in 2011 te Pā was born.
