Corban’s Estate NZ Heritage listing event

A listing recognition event was held last month for Corban’s Winery and Mt Lebanon Vineyards (Former), now a Category I historic place.  Founded in 1902 by winemaking pioneers from Lebanon, it has  outstanding significance for demonstrating the key contribution of migrants from outside northern Europe in the development of this country’s wine industry from small-scale production to its prominent position in Aotearoa New Zealand’s national economy today. 

Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Board Chair, the Honorable Marian Hobbs noted that “The Corban’s name is synonymous with the production of wine and is a household name.”

The event acknowledged the huge amount of research that goes into listing assessments conducted by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga and the many who contribute, including owners, custodians, and community members.
