When Fess Parker purchased the 714-acre Foxen Canyon Ranch in 1988, he planned to run cattle, plant a few acres of vineyard, and perhaps, someday, establish a small winery. His dream was to start a family business that he could pass on to future generations. Eli Parker and his sister Ashley Parker Snider are now the stewards of their father’s vision for the family portfolio of businesses. Eli and Ashley work closely with Winery President, Tim Snider and their children, Spencer Shull and Greer Shull.
Greywacke (pronounced Greywacky) is the Marlborough label of the Judd family and the name of New Zealand’s most abundant bedrock. These understated grey river stones are found throughout Marlborough’s rivers and alluvial vineyard soils. Established in 2009, Greywacke is truly a family affair. The fruit is sourced from mature vineyards in prime viticultural sites to optimise the potential afforded by Marlborough’s sunny South Pacific climate. The Greywacke range is primarily based on two varieties, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. Kevin’s signature vineyard photographs provide the distinctive identity of the Greywacke labels

Our state-of-the-art but small-scale winemaking facilities give them the tools to achieve this. Whilst Nautilus wines can easily be enjoyed on their own, we believe they are even better when paired with delicious food and the philosophy of creating food-friendly wines is paramount for winemaker Clive Jones.
