Montana? No – Brancott Estate

Montana, one of the best known and largest wine brands in NZ, is changing its name to Brancott Estate. It is already known by the new name in the US. Pernod Ricard NZ, the owners of the Montana brand, say that it makes sense to name the wine after the Brancott Vineyard which was Montana’s original Marlborough vineyard and where sauvignon blanc was first planted in Marlborough.
