A new generation of winemakers has taken the reins at Hunter's Wines, but former winemaker Gary Duke is still around to keep an eye on his proteges. In his 24 years as chief winemaker, Duke saw the Marlborough wine industry expand from a small collection of cellar doors and wineries to the behemoth it is today. After starting as a cellar hand in Australia, Duke progressed up the ranks to become a winemaker, a title he held when he was hired by Hunter's Wines managing director Jane Hunter in 1991.
