Dry River was established in 1979 by Dr Neil and Dawn McCallum and was one of Martinborough’s first wineries. Dry River rests on the very arid, gravelly, free-draining soils near the Ruamahunga River, an area known as the Martinborough Terrace.
The McCallums’ dream was to produce unique, high-quality wines that age beautifully. It has been our focus ever since.
Dry River is now a dedicated team of six. With small vineyards and limited production each year, our wines evolve in the bottle, and reward patience by getting better over time.
