Dog Point

After working together at Cloudy Bay and finding they shared the same aspirations, James Healy and Ivan Sutherland decided to return to a more 'hands-on' approach to winemaking. Using fruit from the 80 hectare Dog Point Vineyard established by Ivan and Margaret, the pair launched the Dog Point label together with wives Wendy and Margaret in February 2004 using fruit from the 2002 vintage. Now they own what was THE Cloudy Bay vineyard with some of the oldest vines in Marlborough.
