Settlement Wines

Settlement Wines

Owner, Steve Planthaber, grew up in the Barossa Valley, surrounded by vineyards and the wine industry from a young age. On leaving school he found his way to the deep south of New Zealand to study chemistry and work for some of New Zealand’s largest companies in a variety of roles. A move to Marlborough with his partner Kirsty Sutherland cemented his love of wine, and after 12 enjoyable years working for Cloudy Bay Vineyards in production and operations, he decided to use his diverse skills and experience to relish the opportunity to form his own wine brand, Settlement.

At Settlement, they carefully select fruit from Marlborough's top organic single vineyards to craft four wines - Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Noir. These wines, sourced from renowned sites in the Wairau and Southern Valley, benefit from the region's organic farming practices. With minimal intervention in the winery, the purity of the fruit is preserved, resulting in elegant, complex wines.
