Ellie Bartow, daughter of one of the Ten Sisters, and her husband Dennis now manage the family’s wine business.

“Ten Sisters is named after the ten King daughters, who have one brother. My mother is the fourth oldest. She, my grandmother and I launched Ten Sisters, with some help from the rest of the family (brother included!). Our wine label was designed by my mum".

"Our Pinot Noir, is aged in a combination of new and older French oak barrels and is made in a food-friendly Old-World style. Our vineyard and winemaking facilities are certified as sustainable", says Ellie

The Ten Sisters and their brother are fourth-generation New Zealanders and their ancestors were among the first settlers of the southern tip of the South Island of New Zealand.

Their parents, Robert and Mary King, were both born in Invercargill, the southernmost city in the country. After Robert returned from World War II, he bought 750 acres of wild, uncultivated land and, over many years, created a beautiful farm.

He and Mary would eventually have 11 children, only one a son. As their family grew and children and grandchildren lived abroad, the family would often have reunions around the world, travelling together and sharing and developing their love of food and wine. Later in life, Robert and Mary moved to the sunniest part of New Zealand, Marlborough, and planted a 4 hectares of vineyard on their land, fulfilling their longtime dream.

A single vineyard located in the prime wine-growing portion of renowned Marlborough, flanked by golden hills and blue mountains.
