Our STORY

Our

STORY

Colombo was established in 2014 by Swiss-Irish couple Baptist Sieber and Carolyn Irwin. Continuing this international perspective, in March 2018 the reins were passed over to German-Kiwi husband and wife team of Thomas and Nicola Röckinger.  

Our cellar door is set in amongst our 19 year old Pinot Noir home block vineyard on Todds Road, a short distance from the Martinborough Town Square.

Our

TEAM

We are a small team of four:

- Thomas, originally from the Stuttgart region of Germany, fell in love with Martinborough during vintage in 2012 and once qualified in winemaking and viticulture, returned to settle in the area.

- Nicola, Hawke's Bay born and bred and a qualified accountant by profession, in charge of keeping the business affairs ticking along behind the scenes.

- Simone, our Italian assistant winemaker and cellar door extraordinaire, a longstanding team member at Colombo.

- Ro, the latest addition to the Colombo team. The smiling face ready to greet you at cellar door.

We also work closely with a fantastic group of local caterers for events such as our monthly No Menu Nights and private functions and local suppliers for our cellar door offering.
