Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Vineyard combines the considerable winegrowing experience of Ivan Sutherland and James Healy, the former chief viticulturist and head winemaker at New Zealand’s Cloudy Bay.

Dog Point is situated in Marlborough, on the tip of New Zealand’s South New Zealand Wine

Once Dog Point was the name given by early European settlers to the rough patch of land where stray dogs gathered, forming an unruly pack.

Now it is both a wine label and a vineyard, set up by Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and James and Wendy Healy, after James and Ivan met working at Cloudy Bay, and it’s to Dog Point (run by another Cloudy Bay escapee, Kevin Judd), rather than Cloudy Bay, that those in the know would go for an upmarket sauvignon blanc fix.

The name Dog Point dates from the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district.

These were days of few fences, of boundary riders and “boundary keeping dogs”. Shepherds’ dogs sometimes became lost or wandered off and eventually bred into a marauding pack which attacked local flocks.

Their home was a tussock and scrub covered hill, overlooking the Wairau Plains, designated by the early settlers as Dog Point. http://www.dogpoint.co.nz/dog-point/
