Saint Clair was established in 1994 by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, winegrowers and pioneers in Marlborough since 1978. They own 193 hectares of vineyard in Marlborough (South Island) and Hawkes Bay (North Island). Neal and Judy operate a unique grading system for all of their wines that has seen them receive consistent recognition of its winemaking success through numerous medals, awards and trophies, both internationally and domestically. They are pioneers of single vineyard sauvignon and pinot noir in Marlborough.
Kyle Thompson is Saint Clair’s Senior Winemaker. Having studied food science, Kyle began his working life in the dairy industry, involved in microbiology and sensory evaluation. Kyle has always been passionate about wine, but his interest in the wine industry began in earnest while living in London and working in France. After two vintages in Bordeaux, a vintage in Tuscany, and further winemaking study, Kyle returned to his homeland of New Zealand.
Having worked with a number of renowned Marlborough wineries, Kyle was excited by the opportunity to join Saint Clair at the beginning of 2006 – when the new state-of-the-art winery was being built.
Kyle says “winemaking is my dream job. I love having the opportunity to work with some of the most exciting grapes in the world, and a multitude of varieties. I am able to combine my knowledge of old world techniques, with the freedom, innovation and cutting-edge technology that winemaking in New Zealand gives me”. We’re excited to welcome him to Paris House.
