The name Dry River was originally held by a historical Martinborough sheep station (circa 1877) near what was initially called the Waihora River. Established in 1979, the Dry River winery is located in what is now called the Martinborough Terrace, a gravelly, free-draining area within the lowest rainfall zone in New Zealand’s North Island.

Established in 1979 by scientist, and passionate wine man, Dr Neil McCallum and his wife Dawn, it was sold in 2012 to New York investor Julian Robertson and Napa Valley winemaker Reg Oliver.

The McCallums’ dream was to produce unique, high-quality wines that age beautifully. It has been our focus ever since.

The new owners have provided the means for necessary winery expansion and renovation to meet its present needs as a producer with an outstanding international reputation. Dry River is now a dedicated team of six. The wines of Dry River have been masterly crafted by Chief Winemaker, Wilco Lam, since 2014.
