Millars Vineyard was established in 2005 after a long and sometimes exhaustive effort to find the right property to develop. Having initially lived in Auckland we made the decision in the late 90’s to pursue our dream of a commercial vineyard.
Having looked at several properties we finally settled on a beautiful 10 acre block in the Kingsview Farm Estate, in Northland’s scenic seaside town of Mangawhai.
The Millar family is made up of Ross, Jennimay and our 5 children – Kimberley, Jordan, Zac, Elliott, Harrison, Scooter (our Jack Russell dog) and TinTin (our cat). Our eldest three children chose to stay in Auckland whilst the youngest two, Elliott and Harrison came with us to follow our dream (God bless them!!). Planting out a vineyard was a big challenge and the whole family has had to work very hard to achieve our goals. Throughout the blood, sweat and occasional tears there have been large slices of fun and laughter and old fashioned pride. It has been a wonderful journey and long may we keep producing top class wines. My immeasurable thanks to my wife for keeping my feet on the ground and to my children who never stopped believing in me.
We look forward to meeting you soon and sampling the fruits of our labour.
