Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
Enjoy time with friends this weekend.
Hey neighbours, did you know...
Ivan Donaldson first planted a small vineyard in Canterbury soil in the seventies as a hobby.
The vineyard was one of the first ones to be planted in the region and quickly turned into a love of wine for the former neurologist, who sought to pursue winemaking as a full-time career.
This year, the family celebrates three decades since Ivan first released a Pegasus Bay vintage from his garage, with the responsibility now resting on eldest son and winemaker Mat Donaldson, who has since produced the next 27 of the family’s 29 vintage wines.
The winery now exports to more than 25 countries.
