Family-owned TIKI continues the farming tradition of the McKean family. The Waiata Vineyard in the Waipara Valley was the initial springboard in 2004, followed by Marlborough plantings in the Upper Wairau Valley and Central Otago pinot noir sourced from sites planted by Sue's father, Denis Marshall, in the Gibbston Valley in 2003.
The first TIKI wine was from the 2009 vintage, a sauvignon blanc. TIKI also produce pinot gris and pinot noir. A pinot noir rose is also produced from early pinot noir pressings.
TIKI believes great wine is created in the vineyard and is an expression of place, people and time.
