A native New Zealander, John Belsham never sought to be a winemaker; rather winemaking found him. As a university student, Belsham traveled to Europe with friends in 1977. Eventually finding himself broke in Bordeaux, he sought out a vintage job at Chateau Saturnin, a small winery in the Medoc. With an aptitude for science and a naturally keen wine sense, he was asked to stay on as a winemaking apprentice. Quickly becoming fluent in French, Belsham spent 5 years as the understudy of Adrian Tramier, a meticulous winemaker who taught him the art and science of the trade.
Returning to New Zealand with a passion for wine, Belsham set out on a clear career path and was appointed assistant winemaker at Nobilo Vintners in 1982. A rising star, he soon became the sole charge winemaker at Matua Valley and arrived on the Marlborough scene in 1987, when he was appointed winemaker at Hunter Wines.
