The Family of Twelve is a fraternity of twelve of New Zealand’s most prestigious and enduring artisanal wineries. Founded in 2005, the Family’s vision is to nurture long term relationships with an emphasis on education both at home and in our key export markets. The promotion of New Zealand wine at its best is paramount.

Neither flashy nor fashionable our family table is about sharing a simpler set of beliefs; exchanging ideas while keeping a common thread that binds us all together. But our connection isn’t merely intellectual, on a practical level we share information, best practice and sometimes even secrets. Contrasting personalities, different wine regions and styles make up our family and we celebrate these differences. We are a family of twelve siblings with one voice and one purpose. Clarity in a crowded wine world.

Twelve dedicated New Zealand wine producers who embody the diversity, complexity and intensity of New Zealand wine at its finest.
