Our People

Andrew Blampied

Operations Director

After growing up in Gisborne and spending most of his time on the farm, it was a natural progression for Andrew to take over management of the viticulture and winemaking operations at Lake Road.

Acknowledging the achievements of his forebears, he has dedicated himself to constantly improving the business and the quality of wines produced. This drive and commitment were a decisive factor behind the recent acquisition of the new Brunton Road Vineyard.
