But it wasn't until 1973, when Frank Yukich of Auckland’s Montana Wines selected Marlborough for its expansion efforts. He saw the potential of this region, with sunny days and cool nights that ensure a long growing season and well balanced grapes. The success of his endeavors prompted other wineries to follow, many of them international enterprises. One of the most notable of these is Australia’s Cape Mentelle, who established the widely successful Cloudy Bay Read more »
