Steve Harrop and Fenella Barry are the proud owners of
Sublime lodge which they built In by renovating an old farmhouse. Fenella and
Steve moved with their two young children to the Waitaki Valley because they saw
the potential for growing fine wines. They were the first family to move to the
Waitaki Valley for this purpose and with this pioneering spirit they purchased
there chosen site in 2009 and commenced planting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in
the north facing slope around their lodge. They have built a beautiful lodge
purpose built to capture the wonderful expansive views over the vineyards to the
Waitaki river and the mountains beyond. The house itself is filled with art and
treasures that have been collected from all their travels. Fenella and Steve
have worked in restaurants all over the world and the warm, easy but
sophisticated service is a tonic for everyone who stays there.
