In Te Reo Māori, Ata Rangi means “dawn sky” or “new beginning”. It is a name that honours our land and reflects the work we do here. Ata Rangi was founded by Clive Paton in 1980. The first vines were planted on a small, stony sheep paddock at the edge of the Martinborough Village. Clive’s sister Alison bought an adjoining block soon after and in 1986 Clive’s partner Phyll Pattie joined the family business. 40 years on, with Helen Masters crafting the wines aided by the vital stewardship of vineyard manager Braden Crosby. We continue to work diligently creating world class Pinot Noir.
