Established in 2004, Two Rivers of Marlborough takes its name from the iconic rivers that feed the wine growing heart of Marlborough’s renowned Wairau and Awatere Valleys. It was in the Awatere valley, overlooking the braided river, that founder and winemaker David Clouston spent his childhood. He now lives in the Wairau valley, where he has made his home and his mark on the wine industry.
Two Rivers of Marlborough’s mission is to select the finest parcels of fruit from the banks of both the Wairau and Awatere rivers and to craft wines that express the different microclimates peculiar to these two rivers.
Our aim at Two Rivers of Marlborough is to capture and emphasise the intense power of
flavour for which Marlborough is famous while adding complexity and elegance to our wines through traditional winemaking techniques.
It is this complexity and elegance with a slight European flair that has seen Two Rivers of Marlborough produce wines of great standing and concentration that are ideally matched with the finest local cuisine.

It is also the quiet space in which he contemplates and constructs the very special wines on which he has built a fine reputation.
