About Emerald Wines
Emerald Wines is an independent wine company started for the craic by a Kiwi and an Irish cailín. Craic /krak/ is an Irish word with no direct English translation. Craic is abandonment, mischief, gossip, an enjoyable conversation, a state of being and atmosphere Tom and Michelle met the day before Toast Martinborough at the annual barrel race where Tom was on the winning team! A joint passion for growing, making and drinking wine started . After a few years of working and traveling around the world, the pair located to Marlborough in 2019. Here, Tom’s new position at The Coterie, a small batch contract winemaking facility, served as the perfect platform for them to kick start their wine business.
