"Edward and Marjory Leung have been wine enthusiasts for as long as they can remember, with a particular passion for Pinot Noir. Ma Maison boutique winery is the expression of that passion, born out of the Leungs’ desire to share their love of Pinot Noir with others."
The couple purchased a small block of land in Martinborough and planted their first Pinot Noir vines in 1995, naming the vineyard after their restaurant. They also relocated an old house from the Petone foreshore to the vineyard as the home for a winery restaurant, where they served nine-course menus on weekends. While the Leungs closed the winery restaurant in the early 2000s in order to focus on producing (and enjoying!) their growing family and beloved Pinot Noir, the building remains a gathering place for meals with family and friends.
