A biography written by Tessa Anderson tells Jane's story from Marlborough to Manhattan, from Rapaura to the Ritz –the inspirational story of one woman and her place in history of New World wine.
In the last 30 years the province of Marlborough has moved from relative obscurity to become New Zealand’s largest and best known wine region with a reputation for producing some of the world’s finest Sauvignon Blanc. This huge potential was something that was recognised back in the early 80’s by Ernie Hunter of Hunter’s Wines, when he founded his fledgling winery in the region’s Wairau Valley.
In 1987, Ernie’s dream almost died with him when he was tragically killed in a motor accident. The marketing and public face of the winery, he was largely responsible for the initial international acclaim Hunter’s Wines received.
Some 20 years on, Jane has become internationally recognised in her own right as a leading vintner and one of the pioneers of Marlborough’s Sauvignon Blanc success. She is also the recipient of many awards and acknowledgments, including the prestigious Women in Wine Award and an OBE. Her story is one of perseverance and resilience and it’s finally told in the new biography, Jane Hunter: Growing a Legacy, written by Tessa Anderson.
