The Family of Twelve is a fraternity of 12 of New Zealand’s most successful and enduring artisanal private winemakers. Like all interesting families we're made up of very distinct individuals. There are the bold ones who will always gravitate to the head of the table and the quiet ones content to watch and listen. There are the old and the young; the ones with the experience of years and the ones with energies and enthusiasms of youth. A typical family.
