ALLAN SCOTT: Allan Scott first ventured into pioneer viticulture in Marlborough, in 1973, when the first grapes were commercially established in what was to become an iconic wine growing province in New Zealand and throughout the world. Filled with the pioneering spirit and armed with basic viticultural knowledge, Allan embarked on a lifetime of hard work, passion, and dedication, managing to grow and produce some of Marlborough’s best vines and develop local techniques which are now the basis of standard viticultural practice in New Zealand. Having established the first vines over 40 years ago, and the Allan Scott wine label in 1990, Allan Scott Family Wines and Estates Limited is now one of New Zealand’s larger, fully integrated, family wine operations.

THE WINE: The Generations Series wines are a tribute to family tradition and a commitment to quality. They are single-vineyard sourced and made from the best grapes grown on the Scott family’s own estate. These elegant wines are the result of low-yield vines, meticulous viticulture and special attention in the cellar. Due to the exacting standards, these wines are only produced in limited quantities.
