Tupari Vineyard

"I've worked with Aaron and the team at Hortus for six years now and have found them excellent to deal with, organised and professional. Importantly they represent good value for money while also maintaining a high quality standard."

Ant Moore Wines

"Hortus have managed over 500 acres for me for more than six years, during which time we have had good progressive management of the vineyards. Aaron, Josh and the team are always attentive and keen to jump in and get jobs done promptly and efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending Hortus and have in fact recommended them to a number of other vineyard owners."

The Dam vineyard

"Hortus Ltd possess a wide age demographic of highly skilled 1st and 2nd generation personnel from within Marlborough and other regions with grapes in their blood. I believe the greatest asset of any company are the people within it.

I am impressed by the knowledge across team Hortus and the fact that they all believe in the common goals/ethos and objectives of their company. This is illustrated from my interaction from management to the personnel working within the vineyards. Also I have noticed the crews treat the vineyards as their own, illustrating both Pride and Passion. The leadership and company management structures allow for more than adequate communication and timely decision making scenarios. Their use of technology always impresses. I am looking forward to a long and fruitful learning experience with the Hortus Team."

Marlborough Vintners LTD

"I worked with Hortus for the past three years as a winemaker at Marlborough Vintners 2011 Limited. Aaron and his team have been fantastic. From talking through pruning decisions, canopy management, taking fruit maturity samples and overseeing each block being harvested, the communication has been clear and accurate. This is great benefit to MVL and me during the busy harvest time.
The Hortus team are organised, knowledgeable and professional. I look forward to working with them again as the 2014 season approaches."
