ROGER PARKINSON

Roger is founder, winemaker and ceo (shorthand for all the jobs no-one else can be persuaded to do) with overall responsibility for grape and wine production, marketing and general management.

When not engaged in the above Roger can be found running around after two busy, delightful teenage children – Henry “whatever Dad” and Ella “Dad you’re such a fail”, indulging his golf addiction, swimming, or playing a mean (not in a good way) guitar. Married to Carol.

Greatest achievement – getting Carol to marry him.

CAROL PARKINSON

Carol is a shareholder, director and Nga Waka company accountant. Married to Roger.

Somehow also finds time to be practice manager for a local accountancy firm and run a household of two, aforementioned teenagers, one idle husband and a substantial menagerie (chickens, ducks, cat etc.)

Similar, but more successful addiction to golf than Roger and a budding squash player. Theme – women can do anything because they have to do everything.
