Discovering the historic McCreanor vineyard in Martinborough, they purchased it in 2015. The husband and wife team now spend their days working the vineyard and land, and making the individual wines. The McCreanor Vineyard was planted in 1988 and is located on Princes Street, it is most famous as the source of one of Escarpment's icon wines - Pahi.
