HAYDEN JOHNSTON - Ngāi Tahu
In 1836 Hayden’s 4th great grandfather, Captain James Joss married KURU KURU of Ngāi Tahu tribe, Hayden’s Māori Grandmother. They purchased a parcel of land from the local Māori chief and farmed vegetables for sale to the early European settlers to New Zealand.Visit Kuru Kuru Website
Kuru Kuru’s aroha or love for the land continues today with Hayden’s organically farmed vineyard in Central Otago. Established in 2002, this beautiful land rewards that care with grapes that make exceptionally high quality wine, year after year.
