The Fairhall Downs Estate
| Ken Small and Stuart Smith have been grape growers
in Marlborough since 1982, supplying Montana and Villa Maria from their 20
Hectare vineyard at the top of the Brancott Valley Road.
In 1996 they launched their own label, with John Forrest as the contract winemaker, and using the Forrest Estate winery facility. (Excerpt from James Holliday's Wine Companion 1999)

a Blue Gold Medal and made the Top 100 at the Sydney International Wine Competition.
