Akarua Winery has a world-wide reputation for producing quality wines. Located in the world's southernmost winemaking region Central Otago, NZ. Skeggs Group is a second-generation family business now owned by David and his two brothers, Bryan and Graeme. Skeggs Group has extensive interests in Seafood, Shipping, Tourism and investments in property and wine. There has always been a family interest in wine and David's father Sir Clifford Skeggs was one of the initial investors in the Central Otago wine industry due to his love for wine and the region. He purchased the property at Akarua in 1995 and planting commenced in 1996. By September 1998, 81,000 vines had been planted over 34.5 hectares and by 2001 additional land had been purchased and further vineyards developed, making Akarua today the largest family owned single vineyard and winery in Central Otago. The Skeggs family has a long association with Central Otago, as it has been their holiday destination since the early seventies.
