E71 Claire Allan - Huia Vineyards
Claire spent her childhood in North Canterbury in the South Island, (Te Wai Pounamu) and after studying winemaking at Roseworthy in Adelaide, Australia she returned to Marlborough to embark on her winemaking career. After learning the craft of making bubbles at Champagne Taittinger, then coming home and working as a winemaker for one of New Zealand’s earliest wine brands, Corbans, Claire went onto to be the first winemaker at Lawson’s Dry Hills before taking the plunge into making her own wine with her husband Mike. The wine they named after a beautiful native New Zealand bird, The Huia.
