Stewart Maclennan

Senior Winemaker

Stewart has been involved in many facets of making wine in Marlborough and abroad since 2003 and has been a part of the Saint Clair team throughout.

In recent years Stew has undertaken extensive work and travel through Australia, Italy, France and Austria, while studying with EIT, NMIT and WSET and working closely with Saint Clair’s winemaker Hamish Clark has broadened his knowledge and understanding of local vines and soils and his intimate knowledge of the winemaking process at Saint Clair Family Estate. He co-manages the winemaking and production teams and drives quality for all of Saint Clair’s white wines.

Coming from a musical background and education it was an easy transition into the world of winemaking being surrounded by people with passion and drive to creatively pursue the ongoing improvement of the things they love.
