Established in 1989, Lake Chalice is named after the wilderness lake in the Richmond range bordering the north of the Wairau Plain and today the brand is a Marlborough success story – great wines, a tonne of awards and 100% NZ family owned. New Zealand’s endemic falcon – the ‘Karearea’ – is proudly displayed on every bottle of Lake Chalice wine. Sadly this magnificent raptor is now threatened, and Lake Chalice Wines work closely with the Marlborough Falcon Conservation Trust on the Karearea Release Program to repopulate our native falcon back into the Marlborough wilderness.
Raised in Turangi on the shores of the mighty Lake Taupo, Chloe moved to Marlborough to pursue a Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology through Lincoln University, completing her first harvest at the Saint Clair Family Estate in 2006. Now more than ten vintages later, Chloe represents the wine making team at Lake Chalice Wines… that is when she’s not being a Mum to Asher, member of multiple sports teams, performing in Kapa Haka (Maori performing arts), destroying cross-fit records or cooking a mean kai (kiwi food).
