Mud House owes its existence to the spirit of adventure lurking within Essex couple John and Jennifer Joslin. While sailing around the world they stopped off at Picton and promptly fell in love with Marlborough. They decided to settle there and established Mud House Wines, named after the mud-block house they had constructed in the original vineyard.
Since those early days the winery has grown substantially, gone through several ownership changes and expanded its holdings in the leading southern wine regions of Marlborough, Waipara Valley and Central Otago. The vineyards are sustainably managed, and carefully nurtured by the Mud House viticultural team to ensure that each variety and batch reach their optimum potential.
The company operate two wineries, one in Marlborough and one in Waipara, both equipped with leading-edge tech designed to promote natural winemaking processes by minimising human intervention. That technology provides the talented and vastly experienced winemaking team of Ben Glover, Nadine Worley and Cleighten Cornelius with a wealth of options when it comes to crafting their wines. Long recognised for the quality of their output, Mud House continues to garner an astonishing tally of medals across their entire portfolio of varietal and regional wines.
