Background

Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd, the person responsible for the ground-breaking early wines produced in Marlborough. The name 'Greywacke' was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard, located in Rapaura, in recognition of the prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the vineyard's soils. 'Greywacke' is a sedimentary rock that is widely found in Marlborough, consisting of layers of hard grey sandstone and darker mudstone.

Inspiration

My inspirational music

The stereo is pretty much always blasting around the winery. What I listen to depends_x001A_ If it is early in the morning and I'm doing a bit of barrel stirring then perhaps a bit of Neil Young or Lou Reed. After lunch maybe I'll move it up a notch - Lucinda Williams Live at Fillmore is a favourite. Then perhaps some solid Led Zeppelin as the day wears on. If it gets really hectic perhaps even some old ACDC! Kevin Judd
