Stylish, finely blended wines of a consistently outstanding quality are the signature of Babich. One of New Zealand’s largest family-owned wine companies, the winery was established in 1916 by Croatian immigrant Josip Babich when he and his brothers purchased a 72-acre property in Henderson Valley. Over the years, the family has become a premier producer of New Zealand wines, exporting to numerous markets around the world. Today, second generation brothers Peter and Joe Babich oversee the winemaking and production team. In 2001, Peter’s son David joined the company as General Manager. His job includes ensuring quality and continuity of grape supply. With vineyards in Auckland, Hawke’s Bay, Marlborough and Gisborne, Babich combines the craftsmanship of today with the experience won from years of pioneering viticulture and winemaking. Sustainable production and a willingness to invest in the future ensure that this approach will continue to deliver fine wines for generations to come.
Viticulturalist John Sowman and his team manage the Babich Marlborough vineyards. Several acres of the 148-acre Headwaters Vineyard, planted to loam based soils, are BioGro certified organic. The grapes from the dense soils of the 72-acre Selmes Road Vineyard are blended with fruit grown on lighter gravelly soils. Babich Wines are produced in two locations: the Babich Winery in Henderson, Auckland, and at the new winery in Marlborough built in 2013.
