Helen Masters

Winemaker at Ata Rangi Wairarapa, Helen is a bit like Pinot Royalty in New Zealand. And we can’t see her stepping back as a senior member of our NZ wine family any time soon. She’s been called a dynamo, and given that was a way of lighting up your ride as the wheels go round, it’s an apt description. She’s the grape that holds the bunch together, mostly by leading the conga line down by the Avon River at 3am.
