Highfield Estate overlooks the Omaka Valley south of the Wairau River in Marlborough. Founded in 1989, in the early 1990s it was sold and the new owners planned to take Highfield's wines to an international market, and initially limited the range to just four wines to focus on quality. Planning was also underway for developing the winery itself, with extensive new buildings - to be in a style similar to what you might see in the north of Italy.
In 1994 none of this had been built, but the new winery buildings - to be sited at the top of the knoll, with arched loggias, and a tower providing 360 degree views of the Wairau Plains, presiding over all - was an exciting prospect. This was to be the theme of the new branding.
