Founded in 1944 by Mick Brajkovich, wife Kate and son Mate, Kumeu River Wines was one of the early pioneers in Auckland, New Zealand, that helped to establish its reputation as a world-class wine region. The family had migrated to New Zealand in 1938 from Dalmatia, the coastal part of Croatia. Still family owned and run, Kumeu River continues to pioneer new frontiers: winemaker Michael Brajkovich became New Zealand's first member of the prestigious Institute of Masters of Wine, London, and has been testing and championing screw cap closures for close to 20 years.
