Fenestra Winery was established by the Replogle family on the historic Ruby Hill property and in 1980 occupied the century-old George True Winery building on Vallecitos Road in Livermore. The old building had been badly neglected and the Replogles hauled away tons of trash and installed a new roof and strengthened the building. The winery building was refurbished in 1997 and vineyards have been planted around the winery. The winery specialized in classically balanced,award-winning wines from primarily Livermore Valley grapes. Livermore Valley’s first boutique winery, Fenestra Winery has celebrated many years of fine wines.

Doctors John and Brigid Forrest are Forrest, a small, very much 'hands-on" producer of premium quality white wine from their home vineyards in Marlborough.
Leaving behind careers in molecular biology and medicine, John and Brigid returned to Marlborough in 1988 to establish their first vineyard at Renwick – at the heart of the stony Wairau River Valley.
Vintage 1990 saw the first Forrest wine and immediate success with a trophy at the national wine awards – success that has been repeated many times both nationally and internationally over the subsequent vintages.
To the often asked question "why did you do it?" the answer is, a mixture of the wine 'passion' and a desire to achieve and be recognized and rewarded for one's efforts. In hindsight we struck upon a career which suits our personalities – a perfect blend of art and science.

In 1988, in partnership with his brother Jacques, they set up a consulting firm. From Moldavie to Mendoza and from Spain to Australia, they were constantly on the lookout for wine producers, wine merchants and retailers able of replying to the recurring demands of their consumers and clients : Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Hardy’s, Sainsbury. As a result of their endless discoveries, they chose to settle down and produce their own wines in five different countries. In 2007, they decided to reorganize their respective patrimonies and François became the major shareholder in the company, which was renamed François Lurton SA.

One of the most awarded gins in the world, Hana Gin is a crisp and vibrant gin, combining beautiful citrus, juniper and floral ingredients. “Hana” is the Japanese word for ‘flower’ and is the inspiration for our bottle design and the spirit within. On the back of the tear drop shaped bottle is an etched orchid.
Staying true to the Japanese ethos of simplicity, Hana Gin is made with only 4 botanicals. While most gins have a complicated mixture of 15 – 30 different components, Hana is made with Juniper, Orange, Lemon and Lavendar. These four botanicals are meticulously sourced, before going through the rare and technical ‘vacuum’ distillation process. Vacuum distilling allows us to maintain the subtleties of each of the core ingredients.
Named the world’s best gin by Alcohol Aficionado, Hana has won numerous awards including a 94 point rating by Wine Enthusiast, 92 points by the Tasting Panel, 91 points by Beverage Tasting Institute, among many others.
