Gillian & Gareth MacLachlan
Little Wing is Gillian MacLachlan and her husband, Gareth MacLachlan. After graduating with Viticulture and Enology degrees in California and New Zealand, respectively, they met while interning on the Sonoma Coast and spent the next few years working in wine regions in France, Germany, Australia, NZ and California. They were always in love with Syrah, but became passionate about it, along with Marsanne, after working in the Northern Rhone in 2010. They continued to work and travel, and landed in Marlborough in 2011 where they stayed for a few years working and growing their family - Gareth managing the organic vineyards at Giesen and Gillian winemaking for a handful of boutique clients at Sugar Loaf Wines.
