Mount Riley Wines is a New Zealand family business. Founded in 1992, Mount Riley Wines was born out of the dream of John Buchanan who decided to leave a secure job at New Zealand's second largest winery and return to his roots. John is a true Marlborough citizen and Mount Riley can be considered a small boutique winery, far removed from the logic of large groups. An independent spirit and an unwavering commitment to producing quality wines are rather the benchmarks of this fine establishment. Producing wine that people love," reads the winery's website, "is something that goes beyond our territory: it takes spirit, attitude and authenticity.
