Passing the Buck

Passing the Buck  image

In 1974 John Buck together with his business partner Michael Morris, purchased the historic Te Mata Estate winery and its three original vineyards. It is fitting that in 2014, 40 years on, a generational change has taken place. Nicholas Buck has become Chief Executive with Jonathan Buck and Alastair Morris being appointed directors.

While the management is changing, the philosophy at Te Mata Estate remains the same. They are enormously proud of being a New Zealand family business, focussed on the Hawke’s Bay, their vineyards and winemaking.

They are not a ‘virtual’ winery. They are a ‘real’ winery, with real people behind the name ensuring the future of Te Mata Estate into the next 40 years. The parents have well and truly passed the Buck!
