Well supported by his dear wife, Catriona, four kids, and a couple dogs Tiki operates a ten hectare vineyard on the banks of the Tuki Tuki river close to the coast at Haumoana. He grows superb Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as well as a bit of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.

His father served in the NZ Navy in WWII as a Chief Petty Officer on the Leander and Duke of York so Tiki was well informed as a child of the trials and triumph that men and women in the services endured. It gives Tiki pride to be associated with the RSA and to be able to make a contribution back to the organization. Enjoy the wine!
