NZ: Marlborough producer Mud House sold

By | 21 September 2006

New Zealand Vineyard Estates, a subsidiary of New Zealand Wineries Ltd, is reportedly set to buy Marlborough wine producer Mud House Wine Company.

According to a report yesterday (20 September) in The Marlborough Express newspaper, New Zealand Vineyard Estates plans to make Mud House the latest in a series of acquisitions.

The company recently bought Canterbury House winery and merged with Waipara Hills Wines Estate.

Director Neil Charles-Jones told the paper that Mud House was a profitable and rapidly expanding business and the acquisition would boost the sales and marketing team at New Zealand Vineyard Estates.

The enlarged company would have the capacity to produce 5500 tonnes of grapes from growers from its own 350 hectares of vineyards in Marlborough, Waipara and Central Otago, the report added.
