Buckingham Schenk and te Pā Family Vineyards partnership

Buckingham Schenk and te Pā Family Vineyards announce partnership in the UK

te Pā Family Vineyards is delighted to announce that it has appointed Buckingham Schenk its exclusive UK agent, effective 1 May 2018. Buckingham Schenk will be representing te Pā’s wine portfolio in the UK through their te Pā and Pā Road ranges.

Based in the Marlborough region, te Pā has a history stemming back almost 800 years. Set up by the MacDonald family whose Maori lineage goes back to 1350, the te Pā estate spreads over 400Ha of vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau and Awatere regions.

Nestled between the Wairau River and the azure waters of the Cook Strait, te Pā’s home block vineyard at the Wairau Bar is as majestic as it is productive. Thanks to a unique microclimate, the fruit parcels from this vineyard have a soft acidity, pungent aromatics, and complex, ripe flavour profiles.

te Pā Family Vineyards grow Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and their wines have won international acclaim under the expert supervision of Chief Winemaker Liam McElhinney. Liam has built an international reputation with Trinity Hill, Saint Clair and notably in his role as winemaker with Marisco Vineyards, in developing ‘The Ned’.

Haysley MacDonald, te Pā Family Vineyards owner and director comments: ‘We are thrilled to appoint Buckingham Schenk as our exclusive agent in the UK. We believe there are great synergies between our businesses and we share an entrepreneurial spirit which will be key to our success in the UK. We see this new alliance as a major strategic move to facilitate and expand our presence in the flourishing UK market. With the support and considerable expertise of the Buckingham Schenk team, we are now in a strong position to place te Pā’s unique story, fascinating Maori heritage, and acclaimed family of wines, firmly on the map in the UK.’

Craig Durham, managing director of Buckingham Schenk, adds: ‘We are delighted to be appointed by te Pā Family Vineyards as their UK agent. We feel privileged to represent a producer which has such a long history and strong bonds with their local terroir and we can’t wait to start working with Haysley, Liam and their team.’
