Fiona Turner and Matt Thomson, two award-winning winemakers have joined forces to produce the Tinpot Hut line of wines. Fiona's winery takes its name from an old mustering hut in the remote hills between the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. These huts were used as a base for musterers who were responsible for rounding up the sheep that had been in the hills throughout the summer and bringing them down to the low paddocks for the winter.
