Ponder Wines

The name “Ponder” originated with the owners of the vineyard where the first vintage was made. Di and Mike Ponder moved from Blenheim to the 36-hectare estate on the outskirts of Marlborough in 1987 to develop both a vineyard and an olive grove.

The olive grove is long gone, but the wine continues with three hugely successful tiers;; Ponder Marlborough, the standard label; Olive Grove, a premium label; and Artist’s Reserve which is only produced in exceptional vintages.

Ponder believes Marlborough’s wine industry is worth protecting so every wine is made in strict accordance with the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand guidelines.
