Alastair Scott, Matahiwi Estate

Having harbored a lifelong dream of owning a winery and crafting exceptional New Zealand wines, Alastair turned his vision into reality upon his return from living and working abroad.

Nostalgic for the Wairarapa region of his childhood, Alastair knew precisely where to begin his quest for the perfect terroir to produce outstanding Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc wines.

Today, Alastair’s dedication to crafting award-winning wines that reflect the essence and flavors of the Wairarapa is not just a passion but also his thriving business. He actively participates in the winery’s strategic growth and plays a hands-on role.

“I used to dream of owning a vineyard; now, I dream of sharing its wines with the world. My team and I take great pleasure in collaborating with buyers to promote Matahiwi Estate’s wines both domestically and overseas,” says Alastair, who also boasts a talent for delivering ‘dad jokes’ with flair.
