Corofin Winery

Mike Paterson’s family has its roots in Ireland. Before emigrating to New Zealand in 1927, Marcus Joseph Paterson lived in the village of Corofin on the river Fergus in County Clare, so when Mike finally established his own wine business with his wife, Anna, taking the name of Corofin seemed a logical move. . Over the years they had built up an encyclopaedic knowledge of the vineyards of Marlborough, including all the interesting nooks and crannies, where some of the truly great plots were hidden away. They had also nurtured some great contacts along the way, so they were perfectly placed to get their hands on some fantastic parcels of Pinot Noir. They now produce various small volume, high quality cuvées of Pinot which express their site and their microclimate perfectly.
