MUD HOUSE

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.

Cleighten Cornelius

Like many Kiwis, when he was younger Cleighten chose to travel to Europe during his gap year. Fuelled by a desire to see what was on the other side of the world; and an innate sense of adventure and fun, Cleighten certainly made the most of his time. He had the salubrious honour of playing cricket for the Bunbury Cricket Club – the world’s number one celebrity cricket team. He lays claim to sharing bats with the likes of British Prime Minister John Major, Jamaican cricketer Michael Holding and European footballer Gary Lineker as well as meeting the last remaining Bee Gee. Having discovered the joys of travelling, it was only fitting that when he returned to New Zealand to his university studies, he chose a career which would ensure more travel in the future. Cleighten completed his Bachelor in viticulture and oenology at Lincoln University and again set off to the northern hemisphere to work vintages in France (Chambolle-Musigny), Germany (Rienheim) and Cyprus. Returning to his hometown of Marlborough, with world class experience under his belt, Cleighten initially worked at Allan Scott as Winemaker, before joining the Mud House team in 2012. After a decade of winemaking, Cleighten’s core focus remains unchanged, “to make the best wine possible!” He believes learning is the key, both experimentally and from others. Having a job where you only get one chance a year to perfect your art, means that winemaking remains challenging and a continual evolving process. Cleighten and his wife Caroline are very proud of their young family (three daughters!). He spends his time enjoying the outdoor lifestyle which is synonymous with life in the South Island of New Zealand. Camping, fishing and playing cricket in a local “serious/social” club team, along with brewing craft beer and picking up the guitar when time permits. When you meet Cleighten you can still see the spark of the young traveller with a wicked sense of humour that once played cricket with the PM of the UK and other sporting legends.
