Mission Estate Winery is purchasing Ngatarawa wine brands The Stables, Stables Reserve, Glazebrook and Alwyn. Having successfully built up the Ngatarawa label to a point where it is now a popular household name, owners Alwyn and Brian Corban have decided to retire from the thriving business.

Ngatarawa was established in 1981 by Alwyn Corban and Garry Glazebrook. Brian Corban came on board as chairman and co-owner after Garry Glazebrook’s death in 1998. The immensely successful Ngatarawa brands, testament to the Corban winemaking heritage of more than 100 years, will broaden the Mission Estate portfolio of some of the best wines that Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough has to offer.
