Ross and Barbara Lawson founded Lawson's Dry Hills in 1992, they had been growing grapes on their Alabama Road vineyard since 1980, and decided to start producing their own range of wines.

Their first vintage included the Gewürztraminer grown on the winery vineyard on Alabama Road, was just fifteen tonnes of grapes and managed by Ross from the old red tin shed on the property, which is still standing and forms part of the winery cellar door. Sadly Ross passed away in February 2009. The company is now run by Barbara Lawson and General Manager Sion Barnsley.

Their Gewürztraminer has gone on to be recognised as one of the county's finest and has firmly established Lawson's Dry Hills on the national and international wine stage.

Other plantings soon followed and the company now produce a bench mark range of Marlborough wines, which includes Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir as well as Gewürztraminer. All our grapes are sourced from Marlborough's Wairau, Waihopai, Omaka and Awatere valleys.

Our philosophy is a simple one - To produce premium Marlborough wines of great character, quality and varietal expression.
