One of Canterbury's oldest wineries started in a garage

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours, did you know...

Ivan Donaldson​ first planted a small vineyard in Canterbury soil in the seventies as a hobby.

The vineyard was one of the first ones to be planted in the region and quickly turned into a love of wine for the former neurologist, who sought to pursue winemaking as a full-time career.

This year, the family celebrates three decades since Ivan first released a Pegasus Bay vintage from his garage, with the responsibility now resting on eldest son and winemaker Mat Donaldson​, who has since produced the next 27 of the family’s 29 vintage wines.

The winery now exports to more than 25 countries.
