    The Askerne Estate winery and vineyard site was acquired in 1993 by John and Kathryn Loughlin. John and Kathryn were wine lovers who moved from Wellington to Hawke’s Bay after careers in the Finance and Property sectors respectively.

    They chose the Askerne site for its mix of soils and particularly the very free-draining former river bed. The site had previously been used to grow asparagus and later as a stud farm for Texel sheep. The original block was 11 hectares. The first vines were planted in 1993.
